Should there be a C Horn with this Penzel Muller Low Pitch Set?

    I'm thinking I am missing a horn for this Penzel Muller Low Pitch Set -- the wood case it came with has a slot for a 3rd clarinet. We have the A and the B, would there have been a a C Low Pitch?

    More likely it's be a effer, aka an Eb soprano clarinet I would think. At least that's what my wife carries.

    Thanks Gandy! I bet that Eb would be tiny!

    And then there's the Ab...
    I'd like to try playing one some day.

    Just dropping by to make an appearance every two months and to add my 2 cents, a completely assembled Eb horn could fit in the right side of that case -- and a fully-assembled Ab sopranino would be swimming in that spot. I do think the horns you currently have are an A and a Bb and I think you might be right that you're missing a C or, for that matter, an A or Bb Boehm system horn. One could then say that one of the empty slots on the left would hold a top joint and a barrel. The other slot on the left might be just for storage. I can't make a good argument for a 4th instrument.

    All hypothetical, of course. It's probable you can find a Penzel-Mueller catalog and find out: P-M made a lot of horns and there's a lot of documentation online. It's also possible that it's a non P-M case.
