A nice pair of Boosey & Hawkes Emperors just taken in part exchange by Clarinets Direct. The B&H Emperor was a top student model, which competed directly with the Buffet E13 in terms of quality. There are no cracks or damage to the wood. All pads, while not new, are also in excellent condition. The silver plate likewise, is pristine throughout. The Bb, serial number 473684, has a replacement top joint, S/N 522803. There are slight scuffs to the bell rim, but this aside the wood condition is excellent. The former owner was a semi-professional player and has played the pair successfully in an amateur orchestra for several years: He has taken great care of them. The A has S/N A 470382, which matches on both joints. As usual the A has seen less use than the Bb and the condition is near mint. There are 2 barrels for tuning purposes of 63mm & 66.5mm The supplied case, is the original in very good condition. The mouthpiece is an original B&H 593, of exactly the right type for this pair. It has just been relayed to 1.1mm by 17mm and plays extremely well.
