This Selmer Series 9 A is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The Series 9 was the last of the jazz wide bore clarinets made by Selmer, with the top of the reverse cone at the start of the upper joint measuring 15.25mm. However these instruments were also popular with classical players; the great French virtuoso Ulysse Delecluse played Selmer Series 9. This A clarinet features all the usual Full Boehm refinements: Fork Eb/Bb, alternative LH Ab/Eb, articulated C#/G#, and low Eb. The instrument has matching serial nos., V6706 which dates to 1969 & is in excellent condition. The Silver plating is pristine throughout, with no wear. The pads are all fish skin in good order, and are sealing well. The instrument shows NO evidence of cracks or repairs; the wood condition throughout is very good. There are 2 supplied barrels, an original short Series 9, and a more modern Selmer barrel of 66.5mm. The original double case is in fair condition, the interior lining shows wear, and has some screw repairs, but the case latches well.
