HELP, I Want One!

This is a cool vintage Selmer Paris grenadilla wood bass clarinet, serial number D8035. This all wood clarinet is a fantastic option for players looking for a quality professional bass on a budget. It is currently in our shop in line for a complete rebuild, and will ship with all new pads and material.


This clarinet is in solid shape for its age. This clarinet is keyed to low Eb, and all of the keywork shows only minimal finish wear, and everything is tight and functioning properly. There is one small crack in the upper joint (photoed) which will be properly pinned and repaired in our shop during our repad. No other cracks or previous crack repairs anywhere in the horn. Since this instrument came to us on old pads, it will get a complete overhaul before shipping. We'll replace the pads and also do a thorough adjustment and precise regulation.


As a doubler, I've always been a fan of the vintage Selmer bass clarinets. This is an easy blowing clarinet, very comfortable to play and very responsive. It takes your air easily with less resistance than you'd typically find on Buffet, and the larger bore gives you plenty of volume. It's a lot of fun to play, even for us (mostly) sax players. Ships in its original case with floor peg.
