PAIR OF BOOSEY & HAWKES STUDENT WOODEN CLARINETS, 345

A very fine condition pair of B & H wooden clarinets. This pair is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct, and the owner used them as her second study instruments in Music College. The Bb is a B & H model 77, with serial number 159606, this was a predecessor to the Edgeware. The A is an Edgeware, S/N 263441A. These instruments were manufactured as entry level wooden clarinets and the modern equivalent would be a Buffet E11.
The Nickel Silver key work is excellent throughout, as is the wood which shows no damage or repairs. The bell of the Bb model "77" is made of ebonite, all other pieces are wood. The Edgeware A has an upgrade to an Imperial 926 barrel which improves both evenness and tuning. [The Imperial 926 was the top professional model with this type of bore]. In addition, the mouthpiece is also a 926 No.2 which improves the response of the pair. Both clarinets are padded in tan leather and the pads and regulation are in excellent order. The case is the original and has been relined. The current owner is prepared to split the pair as follows: The Edgeware A in double case for 200. The 77 Bb in a modern Buffet single case at 145.
