Rare Vintage H. Selmer (Paris), Clarinet in the key of B-flat, serial #N468 made in France in 1946.
It’s a superb Golden Era Selmer-Paris clarinet, with normal Boehm-system keywork, No cracks to the wood, all new pads and corks from our shop in Wichita.
Nickel-alloy keys (no plating).
Bore size is a bit wider than modern Selmer or Buffet clarinets, the tone-color warmer and darker. The quality of the wood is far superior to any clarinets now being made today, anywhere.
Good for Big Band or Dixieland. Nice fat lower register!
