Rossi French Bore B flat Clarinet
This is an excellent Luis Rossi French bore model clarinet which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The sole previous owner is a South African professional player. With a poly-cylindrical bore this clarinet is based on the Buffet R13, though acoustically it is vastly superior. The instrument features a compensating G/D vent which has many benefits, including raising the pitch of the 3rd register; a major shortcoming of the R13 design. In common with all Rossi clarinets the instrument is in a single piece which allows the correct positioning of the C#/G# hole.
This instrument is in superb condition, with lightly used white leather pads throughout. The wood is in pristine condition, with no cracks or damage. The silver plating is in excellent condition throughout with no wear. The serial numbers are F845.There are two supplied barrels of 62mm, and 63mm. The original wooden tenon guards are included, and the original case comes with the key.
