HELP, I Want One!

Freshly Restored by Rice Clarinet Works

This is a beautifully restored Selmer Paris Centered Tone “Omega” series Bb clarinet, serial number P8450. The C.T. Omega is a fairly rare instrument, showcasing gorgeous hand engraving on the lower joint and bell. You don't see these often, and this one has been freshly restored.

 

This is a lovely clarinet, and while it has been played in its lifetime, it looks to have always been well cared for. There's one previous crack repair in the upper joint, which has been professionally repaired, and no other previous repairs. The keywork shows minimal finish wear and is all in great shape. The instrument does come with its original barrels and bell. In total, there are 3 barrels, measuring 64.5mm, 67mm, and 68mm.

 

This Selmer clarinet has just been restored by Rice Clarinet Works, and has all new pads and material. It has been precisely adjusted and feels like a new instrument in your hands. Sonically, this is a very free blowing instrument, and it takes your air comfortably. This is a wonderful instrument for sax doublers who want a more effortless player, and the bigger bore allows you to push a lot of air through the horn.
