An extremely fine Selmer Series 10 Bb clarinet, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct.  The Selmer Series 10 was the first of the narrow bore, heavily undercut Selmer clarinets which owed much of their design ethos to the Buffet R13. The basic 10 was to some extent the "Cinderella" of the 10 Series. Both the 10G and 10S were ultimately more successful designs for Selmer. However the Series 10 is a superbly made professional model by one of the World's most respected volume manufacturers, and the instruments represent excellent value for money.

This Bb, S/N Z4978, dating to 1976, has wood and Nickel Silver plate in very good condition. It tunes very well, and on playing it, it is hard to see why this design was not more successful for Selmer. All pieces are matching and original with Selmer 10 stamps. The clarinet has recently had a full re-pad in fish skin pads and is in fine regulation.  The case is an older hardshell example in good condition. The m'piece is an Malerne Paris in ebonite.
