This particular clarinet has 7 rings, rather than the more usual 6, giving a fork Eb/Bb in the LH. It also has an articulated C#/G# mechanism, a particular favourite of Sax. doublers. The instrument has no cracks or damage to the wood, which is finest Grenadilla. The German Silver key work is in good condition throughout. The pads are tan leather in excellent condition. All touch and tenon corks are good. There is no joint wobble. The matching serial nos. are P1797, which dates to 1952. The m'piece is a Selmer C in very good condition. The case, is well used, but latches securely.
