Cavalier HR German
Thanks to Ned M for letting me review this clarinet! Metal Cavaliers have also been spotted. Cavalier is one of Conn's student lines and these clarinets were manufactured in Germany. This one shows clear similarities with the other one I have reviewed which was marked with the Conn name.
Bore LH joint top: 14.3mm
Bore LH joint at bottom: 14.7mm
Intonation summary: Dreadful.
Key work quality: The key metal is soft. The nickel keys don’t shine up as well as expected.
This clarinet is most appropriate for: a beginner could get by for a semester with this.
Condition issues noted: The clarinet came with kid skin pads which were very thin. If there is any rough treatment the keys will go out of alignment.
