Boosey & Hawkes Imperial 926 Full Boehm
This is a rare and fine Imperial 926 Bb Full Boehm Bb Clarinet which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The clarinet was a special order from B&H it has all the "bells and whistles": Fork Eb/Bb, alternative LH Ab/Eb, articulated C#/G# and low Eb. The Imperial 926 was manufactured as a professional quality instrument on a par with the Imperial Symphony 1010, but with a bore of 15.0mm, as opposed to the 15.25mm of the 1010.
This Bb, serial no. 231179, which dates to 1963, has Grenadilla wood throughout in excellent condition, with no cracks or repairs. The Silver plate is also very fine with only slight marks, inclusing some slight pitting to the RH "pinky keys". Most of the wear is actually to the tenon rings. The instrument has just been completely overhauled in tan leather pads by Clarinets Direct, and is sold with our full 1 year warranty. The supplied m'piece is an original B&H in good used condition. The case is the original B&H in black leather, which is well used but fully serviceable.
