Pedler Hoosier Boehm System Metal Clarinet 1952/53


Pedler Hoosier 1952/53

This Pedler metal clarinet comes with original wooden case and an original cork grease container. Serial #43041.

All new leather pads, new corks, and a few new springs. Cleaned an lubricated. Mechanics are really good and light. Some of the rings may need adjustment depended on your fingertips.

Bear in mind: It’s not a new clarinet. It has had a hard life, some keys have been bent violently – But after a thorough refurbishment she’s now back in perfect playing condition !!


I’m not qualified to say if it’s a good or bad clarinet, as I’m not used to play the Boehm system.
All I can say, it is easy to play, and it sounds okay. It’s not the best year of manufactory, as the Pedler Company was sold to Martin in 1936.
I am playing a Harry Pedler Albert system from 1933/34 which is a fantastic instrument.
