A personal note about Covid and the music business
Covid has changed the music business forever. How it has affected my business is great and I do not believe it will ever get back to where it was before Covid.
Covid has made it much harder to get my Rheuben Allen products made outside the US. There have been many factories closed, the cost of shipping to the US form Taiwan has much more than doubled and it is very risky to send money out of the country not knowing if the factory will be open long enough to make the instruments I ordered.
One of the products that I will no longer be able to have with my name on them is the Rheuben Allen B-Flat Plateau clarinets. However I will have the same clarinet available a with the Hunter name on them and do the same custom work on the Hunters I did on my own RA clarinets. I really like the way these clarinets play, believe in them and am currently using one myself and love it! I know these clarinets will be great to play and help with many of the problems us older folks have with our hands.
I still believe playing a clarinet or saxophone can be a great thing to be doing with our lives and a lot of fun. I am not as good as I once was but am still have a good time playing my Plateau clarinet.
When you purchase any products from me you will still get my expertise and caring about getting you the best possible instruments available. I also, still have a good stock of saxophones and clarinets I have already had made so there will be many of my Rheuben Allen Instruments available for a couple of years.
Clarinet Bis This can be a great key to add to any clarinet…..
