a Turkish G clarinet
Drool. Is it a metal one? A metal G Clarinet is about #3 on my wish-list presently

Yep. I got it about ten years ago in Mugla, it's the second one I've had. You can now get them from on-line retailers in Turkey quite easily - google "sol klarnet". The quality control has improved so you are unlikely to get a lemon (not true when I first got into it, you really had to shop around in person). Mine seems to have the brand name "Kor" but I don't think that means a lot.

Fabulously flexible instrument, and fits into a whisky presentation tin. (So do most clarinets, but my Peter Eaton B flat is a squeeze).
