Especially for the clarinet guru's
Especially you Clarinet gurus’
Just bought and re-padded a Buffet B13 ebonite clarinet, this is my first B13 after buying countless B12’s (I love em!)
Seems to be a quality horn, and after the servicing it plays very similar to the B12 and much superior to the Indonesian Yamaha aimed at similar punters or of course Jupiter and other generic rubbish.
Apparently (news to me) there is now a B16? I haven’t seen one as yet, have you? have learnt they are German.
Anyway, will blow the B13 a few more times and see..... I think they are still German or France, perhaps you may know?
She is listed on the website for $420
Also have in stock these wonderful ’Step Up Clarinets
: Selmer (France) series 10, wooden (same as I have played since 1981) price coming
: Buffet E11 (Germany) wooden, silver keys, immaculate $1,250

pass the word

Hi Everyone... it's been a while since I've been able to sit down and write a Blog on this site. That's purely because MMM has been flat out all over the Xmas period. There is going to be some great budding muso's out there starting out at their schools' instrumental programmes this year with some terrific instruments under their arm.
Many of these instruments have interesting stories and a history to tell which I have enjoyed conveying to parents and students over this time.
This 'little truck semi/retirement' business has been operating for 2 years now and I am truly having a ball.
Over the next couple of weeks in between truck visits, I have to head down to my writing desk as I have already had requests to start some popular charts for school band.
Uptown Funk’ for stage band and vocal available soon, as sung by Bruno Mars, Limited copyright pre-order will be available as pdf straight to your email.
Got a couple of others on the go for beginner band as well.
Please drop me a line to give me a heads up a few weeks prior if you would like a customised chart done for your school band.
Kel and I are looking forward to hitting the road a lot more this year.
If you have an upcoming school event where you think the combined efforts of Micks Mobile Music and Energetic Music could assist please contact us in advance so we can lock it in the diaries.
Really looking forward to catching up with all
