Selmer Manhattan wooden Bb Clarinet

An unusual and somewhat rare wooden Bb clarinet made by Selmer. Known as the Manhattan, recognised by the Manhattan Skyline Logo. No cracks, chips or pinning. Nickel Keys to are all in remarkable good condition. I have given it a good overhaul, using brown leather pads, so is all ready to go. Would suite an intermediate or advanced player who would probably appreciate the lovely bore and the undercut tone holes both of which go together to make this a truly excellent instrument. I have found a decent ebonite mouthpiece to go with it, plus a lig and cap. I am throwing in a brand new case as well. A collectors piece I would venture to suggest you grab it, while it is there if I were you.

Herbert Couf Wooden Bb Clarinet (with Brand New Case)

Here is a rather unusual wooden clarinet. Though it is difficult to see from the logo one can just about make out the makers name. It is very faint. I believe it was specially made by Artley on behalf of Herbert Couf who was an excellent musician from Detroit. He had a music Shop in Royal Oak, Michigan just outside Detroit where he not only sold these clarinets but also sold his own brand of Saxes as well. He was also first clarinettist in the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. He also started the Royal Music Centre in Detroit where he did teaching and inspired many people to play. Sadly he died in July of 2011 but his instruments can still be found. It is a wooden instrument and has the advantage over a plastic one in that you get a far better sound. No cracks, chips pinning etc. Must admit, the sound is mellow and nice and fruity. Sounds like I am describing a bottle of wine but you know what I mean. The nickel Keys are a bit worn here and there but is as might be expected for an instrument of this age. Pads have all been replaced with brown leather ones having been through my workshop and is in full working order. I have no idea how old this interesting clarinet is as it has no serial number that I can see. Comes with a BRAND NEW Aquae Sulis compact clarinet case, and I have found an Ebonite mouthpiece to go with it.
