This is an Amati 252S C Clarinet, in mint 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 has an unusually high specification; with Silver plated keys, a LH additional Ab/Eb lever, and adjustable thumb rest. 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 "as new". The Silver plate is pristine throughout. The matching serial nos. are 232927. The supplied m'piece is an upgrade to a Yamaha 4C in excellent used condition. The case is the original in perfect 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.
