Hit the Right Note

Seeing an usable clarinet is sure to give any music lover rhapsody in blue. Fortunately, Jamie Cornett breathes new life into well-used instruments by turning them into bright and jazzy lamps. After this clarinet played its last notes, the artist fixed each piece in its own base and a shade featuring sheet music. Sure to make the musician, music teacher or music lover's heart glissando with delight, this quirky piece of home decor gives this instrument a standing ovation. Handmade in New York City using an upcycled clarinet, maple wood base, lamp wiring, and lamp shade.

    Comments about INSTRUMENTAL LIGHTING - CLARINETS:

    First of all, change the first sentence in the written description to read UNUSABLE instead of USABLE because grammatically and contextually it doesn't make sense the way it is. Now let's talk about the instrument selection. Keep in mind I am a clarinetist and retired band director. The artists did NOT pick an unusable instrument to make my lamp. Mine was eminently useable. Replace the 2 shot pads and any student clarinetist would be pleased to have this clarinet. So much for upcycling. This Cl didn't belong in a junk pile to begin with.

    My biggest complaint is the artist installed a 3-way socket with a small harp. You can only use a single wattage bulb with this lamp. A standard nor CFL 3-way fits this harp. What it means is I have to click through all 3 wattage selections to turn it off or change the harp myself so I can use a 3-way bulb.

    I would have installed the barrel before installing the wiring. The cork showing under the lampshade is just plain tacky.

    The music glued on the lampshade is piano music, not clarinet, but I admit the comment is pretty knit-picky.

    This item has cute factor but was not well thought nor planned out in it's execution.

    Comments about INSTRUMENTAL LIGHTING - CLARINETS:

    I ordered it for my daughter's 19th birthday, since she played clarinet since 4th grade up to her senior year. She went crazy over it, she actually thought we had converted her own clarinet. Just to see her face light up when she opened it, was worth the purchase and price.

      LOVE THE IDEA OF RECONDITIONING INSTRUMENTS. THE CLARINET WAS MY FIRST INSTRUMENT SO WAS MY OBVIOUS FIRST CHOICE. PRODUCT ARRIVED BETTER THAN PICTURED. HAVE PASSED MY CATALOG TO OTHER MUSIC LOVERS FOR POSSIBLE PURCHASE, AND I HOPE THAT ARTIST CONTINUES TO ADD OTHER MUSICAL INSTRUMENT CHOICES.

        My son-in-law has this in their living room and it goes very well with all of the instuments on their walls. I would have liked the shade to be a bit bigger,but they are very happy with the way it is.

          I originally considered this for a bedside lamp, but we are now using it in our livingroom, which is primarily used as a music room. It does not have a huge "footprint" and so works well on a smallish end table. It looks great!
