SELMER, PARIS, 10S II Bb CLARINET, 1345

An excellent condition Selmer 10S II clarinet, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The Selmer 10 series was the first major model manufactured by Selmer to adopt a small bore undercut design, in the Buffet Crampon manner. The 10S II represents a major revision of the design which was undertaken in the late 1980's. Selmer seem to have tried to make the 10S II sit more easily with the later Recital clarinet: Compared to the original the instrument seems "darker toned" and plays slightly lower in pitch, i.e. aimed more at the US market.
This Bb, S/N F7803, dates to the late 1980's and has Silver plate, in pristine condition throughout. There are no cracks or damage to the wood, which is in excellent condition. All pieces are original and have matching stamps. The clarinet has just had a thorough "check down" in our workshop. The fish skin pads, which are not new, are sealing well. The key work is well regulated. The case is the original Selmer, again in very good condition.
