CON PAN-AM IN COCOBOLO, Bb CLARINET, 695

An excellent condition Conn Pan -American Clarinet in Cocobolo wood which is having a full overhaul in Pisoni double bladder fishskin pads, and is sold with a year's warranty. This instrument was an ingenious solution by Conn to the scarcity of Grenadilla wood during the Second World War. The same wood was used in the manufacture of WWII Bomber Propellers', hence the nick name; "Propeller wood clarinet". This is a wide bore clarinet; primarily aimed at the Jazz market, it plays with a warm and flexible sound. The main body of the wood is in fine shape for it's age with no cracks or damage. The keywork will be buffed in the workshop to a  nice shine. The  serial no. is 133076.  The m'piece is an acrylic original in good used condition. The case is also original, and though slightly stained to the interior is still latching strongly and protecting the clarinet well.
