QRS "Clarola" Roll Operated Clarinet
- Source: eBay
Twenties novelty item manufactured by QRS piano roll company in Buffalo , New York (plays a small paper roll,like a piano roll , cranked over the holes in the wooden clarinet.)In remarkably good condition for it's age, plays reasonably well for what it is. I understand they may still have rolls for these things in Buffalo??--might check on that... Very original condition, all complete and operable, all original paint and decal. See how much breath you can hold to complete a tune??!! Just in time for Christmas, for the automatic music fan who thinks he has everything? Happy bidding!
