SELMER PARIS, ODYSSEE A CLARINET, £1495

This is a near mint condition Selmer, Paris, Odyssee A Clarinet, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The only reasons the instrument cannot be described as "mint" is that there is slight wear to the logo stamp on the upper joint, and the pads are not brand new. This clarinet has had only one adult UK owner from new, she has just bought a fine pair of Recitals from Clarinets Direct, and consequently this clarinet is now for sale. Selmer clarinets are undoubtedly amongst the best designed French instruments worldwide. The Odyssee was Selmer's entry level professional model. Like the Selmer Signature the upper joint features a large reversed cone which narrows to 14.5mm. This results in exceptionally accurate twelfths, and overall the intonation is superior to most other French designed instruments today.
The wood shows no cracks or damage, it is in perfect condition. The Silver plate is also pristine throughout. The clarinet has matching serial numbers, PO2560, and was bought new 6 years ago. The look and solid feel of this key work is far superior to contemporary Buffet manufacture. The pads are all white leather in "as new" condition. The two original barrels measure 65 mm & 66 mm. The case is a Protech in excellent condition.
