Selmer, Recital, A Clarinet
This is a good condition Selmer, Paris, Recital A Clarinet, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. This instrument has been professionally owned and played here in the UK. Selmer Recital clarinets are undoubtedly among the best designed French instruments worldwide. The upper joint features a large reversed cone which narrows to 14.4mm. This results in exceptionally accurate twelfths, and overall the intonation is superior to most other French designed instruments today.
The wood shows some scuffs and surface marks, but there are no cracks or repairs. The instrument was played professionally by a Manchester based Jazz musician and the Bb which partnered this A is listed separately on our website. The matching serial numbers are C6414, which dates to the early 1980s. All Silver plate is in good order, with most wear to the tenon rings. The clarinet has just had an overhaul in Pisoni tan leather at our workshop. It is sold with our 1 year warranty. There are two original barrels of 62.5 mm and 61.0mm. The supplied double case is in very good condition.
