This Boosey & Hawkes Symphony 10-10 wooden Bb clarinet is suitable for the advancing or professional clarinettist looking to upgrade or play on a good example vintage B&H.
The 600" bore gives this instrument it's characteristic round but responsive sound typical of vintage, large bore, English clarinets.
This particular model is an earlier example, pre action vent with the serial number 150*** and is in a good condition. Although it is an older model, its full dark sound and versatility means it is still popular with many clarinettists today.
Wear & Tear Observations: There are no signs of cracks or repairs to the wooden body, there are a few surface marks but nothing effecting the playability of the clarinet.
The plating on the keywork has some wear to the Eb, C and the LH C# keys but again this is purely cosmetic and doesn't detract from the sound. All the makers markings are present but faded from assembly.
This clarinet has leather pads throughout and will have remedial work completed by our workshop prior to sale.
Service Notes: A pre delivery service/check will be undertaken prior to shipping. At busy periods this may entail a small delay. If this order is urgent please contact us as we are usually able to expedite.
