I have F. A. Uebel clarinets with serial numbers 9036 and 10610. Both are B-flat clarinets, and both await restoration (are not now playable).
My question is: I notice several what appear to be significant differences in their design. This seems unusual for such a short span between serial numbers. Most noticeably, the older clarinet (with lower serial number) has a shorter bottom joint (and shorter bell). The newer instrument is noticeably longer in the lower joint and bell. Also there are several differences in keywork (completely separate keys for G# and A on upper joint, differences in longest keys on bottom joint).
Perhaps I will post a photo.

photos would be really good. But that has time, because in the next few weeks many participants of our forum have their vacation.
