As I was having my general cleaning yesterday, I found my hubby's yamaha clarinet tossed in the basement and when I cleaned it and tried to play, it sounded awful. I waited for hubby to come so that he'll check it by himself. He had this clarinet his high school days when he used to be a part of the music band of their school. I remember the disappointment look on his face because it doesn't sound good. He thought he could have it be repaired and I told him that the cost might not be reasonable so why not replace it with a new one. There are lots of clarinets online, he could have a used one or buy a new one that he thought that our son could also use and get interested with in the future.
