Matched Pair of Boosey & Hawkes 1010 Clarinets
An excellent condition pair of B&H Symphony 1010 clarinets which are a commission sale for Clarinets Direct, having belonged to a professional player in the West Country. As usual the Bb of this pair of 1010s has had more use, the A, less so. The instruments have recently had a full and comprehensive overhaul at a cost of over £550, and have not been played since, a copy of the invoice for this work is included in the sale. The Bb, matching serial nos. 359822 [dating to the early 1970s], has no wear to the silver plate, only some natural tarnish. There is no damage to the wood, which is in excellent condition. The A, matching serial nos. 360406 [dating to early 1970s] has silver plate in good 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 an original B&H No.2. The case is the original, which is in fair condition, but is still functional. If required a better condition used double case can be supplied for an additional £50.00.
