Cabart, Paris, B Flat Clarinet
This is a good condition Cabart Bb clarinet, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. All pieces are original, matching, and stamped "Cabart Paris". Cabart was a fine professional maker pre WW2. The current owner has just welcomed her first baby, and consequently has decided to stop playing. The German Silver keywork is in excellent condition, with no wear.
There is no damage to the wood on the main joints, though there is a small crack to the bell, which has been filled. The tan leather pads, while not new, are all sealing well. The instrument have been down to our workshop for a thorough "check down" prior to sale. All touch & tenon corks are fine. The joints are a good fit and there is no joint wobble. The clarinet plays extremely well, very even and with a fine tone. The supplied m'piece is a Leblanc K10M. This fine wooden clarinet is in excellent condition and is good value.
