Question
We bought a clarinet at the pawn shop for my son to play. It says "Artley" on the case and the serial number is 7117474. It works fine and looks well made but wasn't sure if it is an Artley.

Answer
Hello,
  I can't be 100% sure without seeing the horn in person, but that is a popular brand with quite a few student models in the marketplace.  Not sure of the value without seeing it, but in NC we see these for anywhere between $150-300.  I hope this helps.


Thanks,



Guy
