Pair of Boosey & Hawkes 1010 Clarinets
A pristine condition matched pair of B&H Symphony 1010 clarinets which are a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. They have been owned by a leading UK professional, who bought this pair thinking to go back to his roots, as he began his career on this model, however he decided instead on other clarinets, and these 1010s have had little use and have been very well cared for. The instruments have tan leather pads throughout in "as new" condition. The Bb, matching serial nos. 444688, has no wear to the Silver plate, it is perfect throughout. There is no damage to the wood, which is in excellent condition. The A, matching serial nos. 444708 has Silver plate in superb condition. Again there are no cracks or damage to the wood. All pieces are matching and original. Like the Bb, the A features the later design of Acton patent Vent for improved RH tuning. There are 2 barrels of 62.5mm and 64.5mm. There are also 2 fine condition m'pieces, a Pillinger 1010, SK 120 F3 which plays extremely well, and a B&H 1010 No. 2. The case is the original, which is in good condition.
