Product Description

This is a fully restored, amazing condition late 1970s era Selmer Paris professional bass clarinet, serial number A5373. This clarinet was recently restored in our shop by Derick Tramel, and repadded with the doubler/jazz musician in mind. It features quality leather pads and (get this!) TM Custom machined brass resonators. Yes, TM Customs in a bass clarinet. This clarinet really purrs for pit and jazz work, and is available for a great price.

 

This low Eb bass is in great shape. The grenadilla wood body shows no cracks or previous crack repairs (pins), and the nickel keywork has only mild finish/cosmetic wear on the usual touch points. The original neck and bell are in solid shape too, and the instruments comes with peg an in a BAM case as photoed.

 

If you are primarily a sax player and would love a bass clarinet, this is the instrument for you. The sound on this instrument is huge and very resonant, and it feels like it has a larger bore too as it really takes your air well. Big, beefy bottom end, with all the richness you could want.
