    No, apparently something else got out of whack when the clarinet was dropped.
    A crack in the bell should have no influence like this.

    Actually the Yamaha 220 was based on a Leblanc design (or Leblanc even manufactured it, I don't know).
    That being said, one design or other has nothing to do with build quality. Jupiter might have...

    I'd avoid "private" shippers like UPS like the plague and insist on USPS. Not only are they magnitudes more expensive (check out UPS's "worldwide saver" and you'll see what I mean) than USPS but also...

    (Yamahas come in Silverplate only, here in Europe)

    I can recommend the Jupiter 675S, it's quite a bit cheaper than the Yamaha, design-wise it's a copy of the Leblanc/Yamaha 220. I am very happy...

    I checked the serial of this specimen - it's from 1989. Must be one of the last horns that left that brassmonger Kombinat.

    Duct tape is evil. It's probably my least favourite "band aid". It's unstable, unsightly and leaves a gooey mess when removed. I prefer Jubilee clips, they're a more flexible version of the...
