This is a 1965 Selmer Series 9 professional clarinet, with a serial number U1255.
This model was the top of the line professional clarinet offered by Selmer Paris brand since 1960 and was their first serious attempt to move away from the big bore concept and go after the Buffet R13 share of the market. It can be viewed as an instrument more suitable for orchestral and solo playing, when compared with previous Selmer models.
The instrument is in fantastic condition, with no cracks or damage to the wood. Corks have been replaced recently and we are including a mouthpiece and ligature.
