Vintage Selmer Model 55 Clarinet--Serviced, Gorgeous!
Vintage Selmer Model 55 Bb clarinet for sale! S/n M50XX puts it at 1944. It is in exceptional condition: Plating about 99% with little if any wear, wood in exceptional condition with no chips or cracks, other than a short crack inside the bell which was sealed so nicely that you’d never know it was there if we hadn’t told you. (And honestly, we had a hard time telling if that was a crack or a scratch, so we just sealed it anyway.) Upper tenon has a factory metal cap to prevent cracking, and the center tenon has been additionally capped, likely because it was rounded off and wobbling, but now is tight with no problems at all. Very clearly professionally overhauled within the last couple of years—the bottom mostly in white kid leather, and the upper mostly in cork, and appears to have had very little playing time since. Just through our shop where we had to do very little at all to it, other than oil the bore and make a couple very minor adjustments. Comes in a good ProTec MAX case. A balanced clarinet with a full, warm tone, and the perfect match for the Centered Tone A we have listed separately!
