This is an extremely good condition Selmer 9* Bb clarinet,which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The former owner is a UK based professional. The 9* was marketed by Selmer as "pour la musique symphonique", the 9 was "pour le jazz et les varietes." In other words the slightly smaller bore 9*, with undercutting, was aimed at the classical market, the wide bore 9 at the Jazz market.
This Bb clarinet has matching serial nos., X5987 which dates to 1969. The Nickel Silver plating is excellent throughout, with no discernable wear. The pads are all fish skin, and the instrument has recently had a partial service, with pads replaced as necessary. There are no cracks or repairs, the Grenadilla wood is in excellent condition. All pieces are matching and original. There are 2 supplied barrels of 66.5mm and 64.5mm. The case is the original, in good conditon, as is the m'piece which is a Selmer C85 115.
