This is a fair condition Boosey and Hawkes Imperial, Eb Clarinet, in ebonite, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. This Eb was last owned by a young London professional, who having bought another model, is now selling this on. It is likely that this was used by the military in the past, as, usually, ebonite instruments were made for outdoor use.
The Nickel Silver plated key work shows much wear, with all the ring fingers affected, as well as the majority of the other keys. The ebonite body is in very good condition. The instrument has fish skin pads throughout, which are in good condition, and the instrument should be maintenance free for some time to come. The serial nos. are 248846, which dates to 1964. The mouthpiece is a B&H original, in good condition. It plays comfortably with Vandoren No. 3 or 3.5 reeds. The case is again original, in good condition. In summation this Eb would suit a professional player on a budget, as it is a top professional model at a student price.
