Excellent clarinet. I hand picked it about three years ago. It was bought by one of my best students, and he used it until he upgraded to a Festival. Great, tone, intonation, response. I personally vouch for it.

Selmer Centered Tone C Clarinet


Fantastic Collector's Item!


SelmerCT

With a serial number of P8992, this clarinet had to be made in 1954 or 1955. It is one of the fabled Selmer "Centered Tone" clarinets which were the most popular clarinet of their day. Centered Tone Bb's are still in demand by Jazz players who love the bight, open, penetrating tone.

This clarinet, amazingly, is in near perfect condition. Even the gold paint in the trademarks is original. It looks like it was played for awhile, and then lived, perfectly preserved, in a closet for 60 years!

With all new pads and corks, this instrument plays beautifully.

However, there is a caveat. Like most C clarinets of the period, the intonation has some major flaws. If you intend to actively play it in an ensemble, you would have to have some acoustical work done.

For a collector, this is an amazing find!
