Boosey & Hawkes Imperial 926 clarinet (in Bb)
The Imperial 926 clarinet was originally manufactured as a professional instrument, equivalent to the well-known Imperial Symphony 1010 but with a bore diameter of 15.0 mm (rather than the 1010's 15.25 mm 'English' bore).
This instrument is made from grenadilla wood, which is in very good condition with only a few scratches and no cracks. The keywork is silver-plated and also in very good condition, exhibiting only minor tarnishing and wear (most noticeable on the thumb rest).
The instrument comes with its original mouthpiece, which shows no damage apart from some discolouration to the ebonite. The original ligature and cap are also included, although these have quite significant wear to the silver plating. Two barrels are included: one standard and one short. The case is a brand new Reed & Squeak 'Square' Bb clarinet case, RRP £49.
I have given the instrument a full service, including:
In summary, the instrument is fully set up and ready to play. More photos available on request. If you have any questions or would be interested in trying out the instrument, please do get in touch.
