This Imperial 926 A Clarinet is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The Imperial 926 was manufactured as a professional quality instrument on a par with the Imperial Symphony 1010, but with a bore of 15.0mm, as opposed to the 15.25mm of the 1010. According to O. Lee. Gibson in his book "Clarinet Acoustics", publ. Indiana University Press, the Imperial 926 A demonstrated the best intonation of any professional model manufactured by Boosey & Hawkes, provided it was played with the supplied m'piece; a B&H 926, which is the case here.
The A, serial no. 37240, has no cracks or repairs to the main body of the wood, however there is a tight surface crack to the bell, which is a B&H 2-20 model: This does not go through to the bore. The Silver plate throughout is in good shape, with only slight wear. The instrument has just been completely overhauled in fish skin pads by Clarinets Direct, and is sold with our full 1 year warranty. The supplied m'piece is a good condition B&H 926 No. 3. The case is a modern Buffet in very good condition.
