Selmer Series 9 B Flat Clarinet
A very good condition Selmer Series 9 enhanced Boehm Bb Clarinet. The 9* was marketed by Selmer as "pour la musique symphonique", the 9 was "pour le jazz et les varietes." The Series 9 was the last of the wide bore Selmer clarinets.
This clarinet has 7 rings, rather than 6, allowing for a fork Eb/Bb in the LH. The Nickel Silver plated keywork shows some plating loss, mainly to the ring fingers. The Grenadilla wood is in very good condition with no cracks or repairs. The clarinet has predominantly tan leather pads with cork on the register key. All pads are are in good used condition. The clarinet measures 15.25mm at the top of the reverse cone of the upper joint. The matching serial numbers are T9231, dating to 1964. The original case is much used but fully functional, and the supplied m'piece is a Selmer C*.
