Matched pair of Boosey & Hawkes 1010 Clarinets
An excellent condition matched pair of B&H Symphony 1010 clarinets which are a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. These 1010s have had little use and have been very well cared for, the last owner being a professional in the West Country. The instruments have used "Gordon Beeson" tan leather pads throughout in used condition. The Bb, matching serial nos. 498595, 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. 498635 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. The m'piece is a Vandoren 5RV Lyre 1010 bore which plays extremely well. The case is the original, which is in good condition, apart from one tear to the interior lining and it comes with the keys.
