An extremely fine Selmer Paris Recital Bb Clarinet. This instrument has been professionally owned and played by a member of the Scottish National Orchestra, and is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. Selmer Recital clarinets are undoubtedly amongst the best designed clarinets worldwide. The upper joint features a large reversed cone which narrows to 14.4mm. This results in exceptionally accurate twelfths, and overall the intonation is superior to most other French instruments sold today.
