Clarinets Direct is pleased to be able to offer this unique and exceptional clarinet, perhaps the "Jewel in the Crown" of the James Joseph collection, for sale.

This is an excellent condition Marchi System Selmer Series 10 Bb Clarinet. Probably the rarest, most finely engineered, and complex French clarinet ever put into production. The additional register key on the barrel extends the practical range of this instrument to well over four and half octaves! This in addition to the advantages of a full Boehm clarinet to low Eb. This example has seen hardly any use and is pristine: all wood, key work and corks are perfect, as new. The two supplied barrels are 64.5 & 66.5 mm respectively. The matching serial nos. are B6680 which dates to 1981.
