A good condition pair of Boosey & Hawkes Emperors which are a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The last owner was a professional player and teacher, and these instruments were loaned to a pupil who has now managed to purchase his own. 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 fish skin pads, while not new, are sealing well. The silver plate is in very good condition throughout. The Bb, has matching serial numbers 482208, which dates to approximately 1978. The A has S/N A 528559, which matches on both joints, and dates to around 1981. As usual the A has seen less use than the Bb and the condition is very good. There are 2 barrels for tuning purposes of 63.5 mm & 65.5mm. The supplied case, is the original in very good condition. The mouthpiece is an original B&H 593, No. 2 of exactly the right type for this pair. In summation all pieces are matching and original, with B&H stamps, this pair represents excellent value for money.
