BOOSEY & HAWKES PRE-WAR 1010 Bb CLARINET, 745

This is a late 1930's pre-war 1010 Bb in good condition. The serial number is 35538. We have just entirely overhauled the clarinet in fish skin pads and the instrument is sold with our full 1 year warranty. The key work overall is excellent, with little wear. The wood overall is also in good condition. What appears to be a crack to the right of the upper joint stamp, is in fact just pronounced wood grain. There is however a tight hairline surface crack to the top of the lower joint, which does not go through to the bore. See photo 12. In addition the barrel is not original, it is a Leblanc Normandy re-bored to the correct dimensions. The bell is also a later Boosey and Hawkes Imperial Symphony 1010 example. The m'piece is a B & H BM 2 1010 which has been relayed to 1.1 by 18mm. The tuning and overall response of this clarinet are excellent. The case is a modern hard shell example in fair condition, with sticker!
