This is an Amati 251 C Clarinet, in very good condition. This instrument was made in Czechoslavakia and features a wooden bell and barrel, with a wood effect resin body. For a budget C clarinet it plays easily and is well made. The bore is 14.60mm, which is large for a C clarinet, in fact this is the same size bore as Selmer, Paris, C clarinets. The tuning is excellent with standard French bore mouthpieces, in this regard the instrument is a major advance on older Amati instruments. All fish skin pads are in good condition. The Silver plate is pristine throughout. The matching serial nos. are 228753. The supplied m'piece is an upgrade to a F3A in good used condition. The case is the original again in very good condition. This clarinet would suit a player looking for a bargain priced C for occasional use, or a young beginner, with smaller hands, not quite ready for a standard Bb.
