Product Description

Sweet 1951 vintage Selmer Paris Centered Tone Bb clarinet, serial number N8532. Because of its ease of play while retaining a warm sound, this is a fantastic instrument for jazz and doublers alike. It ships with a fresh repad from our repair shop, and can be had for a great price.


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. It takes your quickly and easily with less resistance, and is a very forgiving instrument. 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. The horn will get a fresh oiling and repad/adjustment from our repair shop before shipping, and price includes everything we'll do to make it perfect.
