Matched Pair of English Bore Rossi Mopane Clarinets
An extremely fine pair of Rossi English bore clarinets in Mopane wood. These instruments were supplied by us new direct from Luis Rossi in 2017. The have had only one careful owner, who has cherished them, sadly ill health now compels a sale.
The instruments feature RH rollers on the low Ab/Eb & F/C keys and a booster mechanism for throat Bb. Both clarinets feature an English bore based on the pre-war 1010, but with much improved acoustics and intonation. The Mopane wood is in excellent condition throughout, with no cracks or damage, just minor surface marks associated with normal use. The silver plated keys are likewise in fine condition, with no wear. The clarinets have been fully re-padded with super pads, and we have just given the pair a thorough check down in our workshop prior to sale. The Bb has serial number E1281, and the A, E1282. The pair come with 5 different length barrels, of 68, 67, 66, 65, & 64mm, as the bores of the instruments are identical the barrels can be used on both clarinets. Some Rossi accessories, including the case keys, are included, but no m'piece, though one is pictured. The original case is in very good condition.
