This matched pair of Eaton Elites are a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. Initially they were owned by Howard McGill, perhaps the UK's most successful session player. More recently they have been owned and played by a Winchester based professional player. The condition of these instruments is superb, near mint. The A is in mint condition. The Bb shows only slight wear to the plating; mainly on the rear thumb bush, and register key.

E490, has no cracks or repairs. The Silver plate throughout is in excellent shape, as are all Pisoni Tan Leather pads and corks. There are 4 barrels of 63.0mm, ,61.4mm, 61.8mm, and 63.8mm all in perfect condition. The m'pieces are both in MINT condition: A custom Pillinger A 4X 55, with R128 facing, & an Eaton, 1.21. 21 A X.
