Product Description

This is a vintage grenadilla wood body Selmer Paris Series 9 bass clarinet to low Eb, serial number S4240. This clarinet is currently in our repair shop in line for a complete overhaul. It will ship cleaned and detailed, with all new pads and material, and ready to go for years to come.

 

If you'd like to get those pit gigs but are lacking a bass, you can't go wrong with this horn. It is especially good for primarily sax players/doublers, as these old Selmers take your air extremely quickly and are forgiving for those of us without “the perfect embouchure.” This horn is in solid shape, no cracks or previous crack repairs that I can spot. There's 3 small repairs to be aware of. There are two tiny nicks in the body (one in each joint, as seen in photos). These do not go though to the inner bore, and are only on the surface of the body. Also, the bottom tenon of the upper joint has had a prior repair, but it has been glued correctly and the work is very good.

 

Our overhaul will include all new pads, fresh key adjustment corks and felts, and precise regulation. We'll optimize spring tensions and key heights throughout, and get it back to perfect playing condition. All work is included in the price you pay. This clarinet ships with its original bell and neck, with floor peg, and in original case. The case is a bit worse for wear, but is still fully serviceable.
