 MATCHED PAIR OF BOOSEY & HAWKES EMPEROR CLARINETS, 895 

A near mint condition pair of B&H Emperors which are a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. This pair have been completely restored. The restoration included reaming the bore to correct Imperial 926 dimensions, and further under cutting and tuning work. In addition all of the pads have been replaced, with Pisoni Premium Deluxe Tan leather pads. The result is a pair of Emperors playing as well as, or better than, the class above, i.e. a Imperial 926's. The Nickel Silver plate is pristine, as is the Grenadilla wood. All pieces are matching and stamped " Boosey & Hawkes". The Bb has matching serial nos. N154900, and the A matching serial nos. N163435, both date to the late 1950's. There are two reconditioned and re-layed mouthpieces, at the correct dimensions for the old B&H No.2: One is a professional 926 in ebonite, the other a 593. The case is a modern Buffet Prestige model in excellent condition, though one of the combination latches has failed and been replaced with a standard hinged latch.
