Cabart, B Flat Clarinet
This is an excellent condition Cabart Bb clarinet, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. All pieces are original, matching, and stamped "Cabart Paris". Cabart was a fine maker active pre WW2. The German Silver keywork is in very fine condition, with no wear. There is no damage or repairs to the wood, indeed it is difficult to believe that this clarinet is approximately 100 years old. The fish skin pads are all "as new" & sealing well. All touch & tenon corks are fine. The joints are a good fit and there is no joint wobble. The clarinet plays extremely well, very even and with a fine tone. The supplied m'piece is a good condition Vandoren B45. The case is stained and worn, but fully functional. This fine French made wooden clarinet is in excellent condition, and would be an ideal purchase for someone seeking a quality clarinet at a bargain price .
