This is a very good condition Selmer Series 9 Alto Clarinet in Grenadilla wood, to low Eb. The Nickel Silver keywork is good and shows only slight wear, the plating is about 90%. 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 wood overall is in excellent condition, there are no cracks or repairs. The Alto has good condition Tan leather pads throughout, all are sealing well. All touch and tenon corks are good, there is no joint wobble. This is a superb alto; Selmer is generally held to be the finest manufacturer in the world. The matching serial nos. are U1631 which dates to 1965. The case is the original Selmer, well used but in good condition. NB The pictured case cover is not sold with the Alto as the Zip fastner has failed.
