Pair of Boosey & Hawkes 1010 Clarinets
A pair of B&H 1010's which are a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. Their current owner has recently bought a pair of Eatons. This pair are Acton patent vent models. The Bb, with matching serial nos. 335998, has Silver plate throughout in good condition. There are no cracks or damage to the wood which is excellent throughout. The pads are all tan leather, which are in good used condition. It features the second generation Acton vent. Both instruments have been down to our workshop for a thorough "check down", with corks replaced as necessary and the key work regulated.
The A, matching serial nos. 285143, has, like the Bb, used tan leather pads in good condition. The Silver plate throughout is in good shape, and the clarinet has the first generation Acton vent. The wood is crack and repair free. There are 3 barrels of 64. mm. The supplied m'pieces are an original B&H 1010 No.2, and a John Denman of 1010 bore. The case is in good used condition.
