Need Help Identifying Student Clarinet

#1
Hi,

First post. I have a student model wood Bb clarinet I got prox. 1986 from a music rental company, but I'm sure it was older than that. It has no logo or brand name but on one joint are inscribed the letters:

18S

...and then on the other seems to be a serial #

92485

Any way to identify make/model? Value?

TIA,

---JC

In the upper, well, middle of the page there's an item that says, "How much is my horn worth?" Click on that and choose, "We need pictures. Take these!" Take some pictures and we might be able to help.

Your clarinet is almost certainly an Artley "Prelude". It was a standard student-level instrument of its day, and still not bad today. You'll find a lot of them in school bands. Check EBay for current value.

Here ya go.

This is the best I can do as far as 'quality'.

There's no way I can get a clear shot of the serial number, but it's on the bottom of the joint just above the bell.

Hope you can help.

THANKS!

Sounds right... given the '18S'. Apparently they aren't worth much, so I guess I'll hang onto it.
