Selmer, Series 9 B Flat Clarinet
A good condition Selmer Series 9 Bb Clarinet. The 9* was marketed by Selmer as "pour la musique symphonique", the 9 was "pour le jazz et les varietes." The Nickel Silver keywork is in good condition with only slight plating loss, mainly to the ring fingers. The Grenadilla wood is in very good condition for an instrument of this vintage, with no cracks or damage, only a few minor surface scuffs. The clarinet has recently a complete overhaul in white leather pads and all pads are in excellent condition, with a tan leather pad on the register key. The clarinet measures 15.25mm at the top of the reverse cone of the upper joint, making it the largest bore Selmer clarinet made. The matching serial numbers are W6515, dating to 1971. The case shows some interior stains, but is fully serviceable. The supplied used m'piece, is a Vandoren 5JB, a jazz lay, open and long.
