This is an excellent condition Selmer Paris Signature Bb Clarinet, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The instrument has been professionally owned and played by a UK player. Selmer Signature clarinets are undoubtedly amongst the best designed French instruments worldwide, featuring many improvements over other manufacturer's models. These include raised tone hole edges for improved pad seating and sound emission. The upper joint features a large reversed cone which narrows to 14.5mm. This results in exceptionally accurate twelfths, and overall the intonation is superior to most other French designed instruments today.
The wood is in excellent condition with no cracks, scuffs or damage. All the Silver plate key work is also in pristine condition. The look and solid feel of the key work is far superior to most contemporary Buffet manufacture. The white leather pads, whilst used, are all sealing well, and will be good for many months to come. The original supplied barrels are of 63 mm & 65mm. Though the instrument is stamped A=442, in fact, with the longer of the 2 barrels it plays comfortably down to A =440. Indeed, with Vandoren 13 series m'pieces, most players will find that the pitch is at A=440 Hz even with the short barrel. The matching serial numbers are PO 6543. The original Selmer case is in good used condition.
