The Edgeware was a lower-intermediate level clarinet made by B&H in England, which was hugely popular between the 1950s and late 1970s. Earlier models were made of an entry-level wood (much like the old Buffet E11), and later models like this one were made with a heavy resin/plastic, for a particularly rich tone from a plastic instrument. Based on the serial number, this clarinet was built in around 1978. These clarinets are also reasonably well regarded among jazz musicians, as they offer a broader tone than student clarinets of the same era, at an affordable price. See THIS REVIEW for more info.

This particular clarinet is in fantastic condition for its age, having been fully repadded at some time in the last year or 2. Because of this, the clarinet is playing very nicely across the range, with balanced tone and intonation. The repairer (not Ozwinds) has used fish-skin pads, for ease of cleaning and maintenance. Cosmetically the clarinet is looking very nice, with only light scuffing on the bottom of the bell giving away this clarinet's real age. The nickel-plated keywear is still looking shiny, and the rest of the body is largely free of scratches or wear.

For the beginning player on a budget, or the amatuer player/woodwind doubler looking for a cost-effective low-maintenance instrument at a very attractive price, in great condition. Included is the original wood shell brown leather case, and a soft rubber thumb cushion. No mouthpiece is included. Pictures to come soon.
