PRE-WAR, LONDON & PARIS, BOOSEY & HAWKES 1010 Bb CLARINET, 645.

A rare Boosey & Hawkes, London & Paris, pre-war 1010 clarinet in good condition. The current owner is a young London professional, and this instrument has been played in many of the Capitals' finest orchestras. The London & Paris 1010 model, as the name suggests, was made for B&H in France. The clarinet has matching serial nos. throughout of 1103.
This Bb has key work in pristine condition. The instrument is in wood, which is in overall good condition. However there is one old crack which runs down from the top of the to joint to the speaker key tube, see photo 4. The repair is old and stable, and we have checked it thoroughly in our workshop. The instrument has just been completely overhauled in finest Pisoni Tan Leather pads, and the clarinet is sold with our full 1 years warranty. The case is in fair condition, and the mouthpiece, though not original is of 1010 bore and tunes the clarinet well.
