This is an ultra rare, matching set of Selmer Paris Mazzeo system clarinets, in Bb and A. These instruments were hand selected by the original owner in the mid-1960's. You almost never see a Selmer Paris Mazzeo, much less a matching set of them!
These instruments came in all original, and we are in the process of completely restoring them in our shop. Each instrument will be cleaned and oiled, repadded, and precisely adjusted. They will each come in perfect playing condition and backed with our full year mechanical warranty.
The instruments themselves are in great shape. The Bb clarinet has serial number U2510, and the A clarinet has serial number U2527. The instruments show no previous cracks or repairs and just minor surface wear from regular play. Included are the original Mazzeo bells, which do not have rings along the bottom and have a less pronounced flare than the traditional clarinet bell. The 2 barrels included are a Selmer Paris “LA” barrel measuring 66.5mm, and a DEG Powerstar barrel measuring 66mm.
Fully restored, this is a truly great pair of clarinets for the professional player and collector alike. They come in their original Selmer hardshell double case, which is in very good condition.
