Selmer, 10S II B Flat Clarinet
An excellent condition Selmer 10S II clarinet, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct.
This is a one professional owner instrument which has been very well cared for. The 10S was the first small bore clarinet manufactured by Selmer to adopt a small bore undercut design, in the Buffet Crampon manner. The 10S II represents a major revision of the design which was undertaken in the late 1980's. Selmer seem to have tried to make the 10S II sit more easily with the later Recital clarinet: Compared to the original the instrument seems "darker toned" and plays slightly lower in pitch, i.e. aimed more at the US market.
This Bb, S/N NO6714 has silver plate in pristine condition throughout. There are no cracks or damage to the wood, which is in fine order. All pieces are original and have matching stamps, including the 2 barrels of 64.5 and 66.5 mm. The clarinet has used tan leather pads throughout, which are in fine condition, and has been down to our workshop for a thorough check over prior to sale. The key work is well regulated. The case is the original Selmer, again in good condition, and the m'piece is an "as new" Selmer C85 120.
