"A clavinet is a keyboard instrument, manufactured by the Hohner company." Do there exist any other companies manufacturing this instument?—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:44, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

In a word- no.--feline1 11:49, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

Why not?—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:44, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

No market. No company makes clavinets. If you want a clavinet, you'll have to find a used clavinet. - Nunh-huh 12:38, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

Well other companies can't just go manufacturing Hohner's patent designs without a license. Virtually ever electronic keyboard ever made has a "clavinet" preset on it though LOL --feline1 15:45, 10 November 2005 (UTC)

It should be mentioned in the article itself that manufacture has been discontinued. Preferably by someone who could say when and possibly why.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:47, 21 December 2005 (UTC)

Should cost be mentioned? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:56, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

The patent law was designed to promote progress, and not regress. The Clavinet patent has clearly been abandoned, and it therefore belongs to noone. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:56, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
