We realize the difficulty of purchasing a Wind Instrument without playing it first and therefore extend a 1 week trial period. It should come as no secret that the Selmer Series 9 Clarinet has become the instrument against which all others are judged. Made in the mid 1970's, this Selmer Series 9 has all of the characteristics which the Pro Player is looking for in a Top Vintage Clarinet - robust and warm sonority, excellent intonation, ergonomic ease. In short, a very exciting instrument to play.This instrument is all original, showing the sort of wear you might imagine would accrue to an instrument of this age and quality. It was the property of a well-known Dutch Clarinettist who always travelled with his horn. And he cared for it well.
