SELMER, PARIS, PRE-CENTERED TONE A CLARINETS, 745

This is a Selmer Pre-CT clarinet in A, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The owner is a UK academic who is also a keen collector. The German Silver plated key work is in good condition throughout, and exhibits a nice shine. The instrument has just had an overhaul in fish skin pads, and touch corks and tenon corks have also been replaced as necessary. There are no cracks or repairs to the wood, just minor surface scratches and marks. There is no joint wobble. The A has matching serial nos. M9907, which dates to late 1946. This instrument is in excellent condition for its age. It will pair nicely with any French bore Bb of more recent manufacture, i.e. Buffet Yamaha Selmer etc. It is assumed that the new owner will have an existing Bb clarinet with their own preferred mouthpiece, but, if this is not the case, a m'piece can be supplied. The double case is a modern Buffet Prestige, in excellent condition, excepting that one of the combination locks failed. Consequently it has been replaced with a standard lock. The original combination lock still functions as it should.
