Does any one know how much it would cost to get new keys for a clarinet?

uhm, Im guessing like 200$ or something. I know theres places that sell separate keys, but Im not sure how much a whole set would cost.

It can vary from maker to maker of keys(i assume instrument keys not case keys). Might I ask as to why you need new keys?

new keys may cost a bundle (student v professional ... SelmerUSA versus Buffet etc) .. that is assuming keys for your instrument are still being made and stocked.

In another post you mention you have an early Buffet clarinet .. so I doubt you can buy just keys. Unless you consider buying another specific age buffet just for the keywork.

also - why do you want new keywork

Your instrument can get refurbished in which case they can optionally elongate the keywork and refit for the pivot screws or other options to make it feel as good as new

I also would like to know why you want new keys.

If the plating is worn that can be renewed as well. But this option is only economically viable on a professional quality instrument.

As for new keys the cost will probably be more than that of a new clarinet - the pricing on replacement parts is unbelievable that is if you can get them. Even for current models from major manufacturers parts can be impossible to obtain.

my band teacher thought that the keys might be fire damaged. But then i tried cleaning the keys with metal polish and they cleaned right up.
