A major tip of the hat to Mike Andrews and Jesse Frederickson (of
Low Key Music) for this new clarinet!
Mike had a really-old metal clarinet he’d come across, that might turn into a lamp someday. He tossed it my way, and I forwarded it to Jesse.
A while later, this lovely instrument arrived in the mail. It’s been brought back from the dead, plays nicely and looks like it’ll make the best lamp stand in the world.
” Here, let me remove the light bulb and get a reed. I have the music memorized, so I don’t need the light anyhow…. ”
