Boosey & Hawkes Regent B Flat Clarinet
This B&H Regent Bb clarinet is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct, and has had only a single careful owner. This model was B&H's wooden student clarinet, and the Grenadilla wood is in fine condition with no cracks or damage. The Nickel Silver plating does show some slight wear, mainly to the RH rings. The pads are predominantly cork with the lowest in tan leather in fine condition. This makes this Regent probably the best set up example we have ever sold, as the cost of this overhaul is much greater than the value of the clarinet. The advantage to the next owner is that this clarinet will be maintenance free for many years. The matching S/N 94864 can be made out clearly on both main joints, and this dates the clarinet to the 1950s. The case has one split to the lining but is fully functional. The m'piece is a B&H 593 No.2 [ which is of the correct bore for this clarinet] and is in good used condition.
