SELMER SERIES 9 Bb CLARINET, 795

This is a good condition Selmer Series 9 Bb clarinet. The 9 was the last of the wide bore Selmer models, ideal for flexible jazz playing. The 9* was marketed by Selmer as "pour la musique symphonique", the 9 was "pour le jazz et les varietes." In other words the slightly smaller bore 9*, with undercutting, was aimed at the classical market, the wide bore 9 at the Jazz market.
This Bb clarinet has matching serial nos., U7698 which dates to 1968. It is rare to find a Series 9 with Silver plating, this example is one such. The Silver plating is excellent throughout, with no discernable wear. The wood shows some surface marks and scratches, but there are no cracks or repairs. The instrument has just had a full overhaul, and is sold with our industry leading 1 year warranty. The case is in very good condition, as is the supplied Vandoren m'piece.
