Selmer, Paris, Series 9 A Clarinet
This Selmer Series 9 A is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct, having come to us from a professional player in The Netherlands. The Series 9 was the last of the jazz wide bore clarinets made by Selmer, with the top of the reverse cone at the start of the upper joint measuring 15.25mm. However these instruments were also popular with classical players; the great French virtuoso Ulysse Delecluse played Selmer Series 9. This A clarinet has matching serial nos., T1326 which dates to 1963 & is in excellent condition. The Nickel Silver plating is pristine throughout, with no wear. The pads are all fish skin in good order, and are sealing well. The instrument shows NO evidence of cracks or repairs; the wood condition throughout is very good. The original case has been re-lined, but still latches well and protects the clarinet.
