SELMER PARIS, PROFESSIONAL ALTO CLARINET, 995

This is a very good condition Selmer Alto Clarinet in Grenadilla wood, to low Eb. The Nickel Silver keywork is good and shows only slight wear, the plating is about 95%. The sleeved, adjustable, crook is in excellent condition, & the bell has only light scratches, mainly where it has been brought into contact with the bottom of the low Eb rod on the lower joint. The Alto has just had a complete overhaul with finest Pisoni Premium Deluxe Tan leather pads throughout, and is sold with our full 1 year warranty. The wood is in overall excellent condition with no cracks or repairs. However it is likely that this instrument was previously owned by either a school or college: Someone has etched an additional serial number, 12467, onto all the pieces, including crook and bell. This has caused some surface marking to the upper joint. In addition a metal bracket has been fitted to the two joints, which, in effect, turns the alto into a single piece instrument. This may well have been done to stop mis-assembly and damage. Hence the one piece case; which is in very good condition. This is a superb alto; Selmer is generally held to be the finest manufacturer in the world. The matching Selmer serial nos. are V2161 which dates to 1967. The m'piece is a Yamaha 4C in excellent condition.
