SELMER PARIS PROFESSIONAL BASS, LOW Eb, 2495

This is a very good condition Selmer Bass Clarinet in Grenadilla wood, to low Eb. The original and sole owner was a London professional who is now retired, he purchased it new in 1962. It has been maintained very carefully. The Nickel plate throughout is in excellent order. There is one old, repaired crack, which ocurred within the first year of use. The crack fortunately runs through the speaker tube hole, as this is metal lined, it has no effect on the response [see photo 11]. The crack has been glued and pinned, and it has been stable for over 50 years, and this with regular use with much pit, theatre and TV work. The matching serial nos. are T454. All pads are tan leather in used condition, though old they are sealing well. The key regulation throughout is also precise and even. The case is the original, in very good condition. The m'piece is a Selmer C** and there are selection of reeds.
