This is an excellent condition Boosey and Hawkes Imperial, Bass Clarinet in Grenadilla wood, to low Eb. This Bass has been carefully professionally owned, most recently by a member of the BBC Concert Orchestra, and is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. This Bass was Boosey's top professional model: It features, double overblowing mechanism, articulated C#/G#, and alternative LH Ab/Eb. Exactly as a comparable professional Selmer model. The Silver plated key work shows no wear, the plating is pristine throughout. The crook and bell are in good condition with only slight marks & scratches, there are no dents or dings. There are no cracks or damage to the wood, which is in good order throughout, apart from a missing rear sling hook attachment. This Bass has had a recent complete Pisoni Premium Deluxe Tan Leather re-pad with John Coppen, & is sealing perfectly. The key regulation is good, there is no joint wobble. There is a floor peg attachment to the base of the bell. The matching serial nos. are 283769, on all main pieces including bell. The case is extremely well used, but still latches and functions well. The m'piece is a Conn, ebonite example, in good condition.
