Product Description
This is a very sweet 1951 vintage Selmer Paris Centered Tone Bb clarinet, serial number N8532. This is a fantastic player for anyone looking for a deep warm sound. A great choice for jazz players and doublers alike. It was just freshly overhauled in our shop and ships in perfect playing condition. 
 
The wood clarinet was Selmer Paris's top-of-the-line instrument in its day. It features a larger bore than your traditional Buffet clarinets, making them favorites for jazzers. This particular Center Tone has more resistance then many of the other Selmers we have had in the shop over the years. Physically, this clarinet is tip-top shape, with no cracks to the wood body. The keywork shows minor cosmetic finish wear, but is solid physically. I'm not convinced it is the original barrel, because it lacks the classic stamping, but it is a Selmer Paris barrel and measures 67mm. The bell is original to the clarinet.
 
Ships in perfect playing condition in a non original wood hard case.
