Free-blowing, with a great open sound, this used Selmer Signet Special clarinet is a moderately-priced intermediate level instrument. There are no cracks in the wood body, and one of the tenons is protected by a metal end cap. One of the unprotected tenons has a 1/2 inch shallow chip on the outside that doesn't cause any problems. All of the tenon corks, with the exception of the one on the mouthpiece, are new, and although a couple of the pads are off color from storage, they all seal well. The logo is faded, but can still be seen on 3 of the 4 parts. There is quite a bit of plating wear, so most of the keys have cloudy areas and a little tarnishing. The mouthpiece, topped off by a somewhat tarnished Bonade inverted ligature, has a greenish cast and several light scratches; nevertheless, it is in very good playing condition. It comes in an older Selmer case that is serviceable, but shows its age. The interior has overall wear and cork grease remains, while the exterior has scuff marks, scratches, rusty metal parts, and marks from a nameplate. Included are 3 new reeds, used, but cleaned swab and cork grease.
