Basset Horn in F -Selmer Paris

Truly incredible condition. This Basset Horn in F by Selmer has had little use over the years. With a range to low C this amazing instrument plays absolutely perfectly throughout the registers. Stunning condition. Tuning is excellent. All pads have recently been replaced with deluxe white leather pads. Barely a mark or scratch on the shiny silver plated key-work and the wood is perfect with no sign of any cracks. This instrument has been lovingly cared for by the previous owner and has been used only on limited outings. Original case does show signs of wear so will be replaced by a Reed and Squeak Basset Horn case. Both the longer and shorter necks are present. Ideal for Mozart’s “Requiem” and '“Grand Partita”.

The Selmer Basset Horn differs from that of Buffet and Leblanc in that it is a small bore design which uses a standard clarinet mouthpiece. Buffet and Leblanc Basset Horn designs are essentially modified Alto clarinets.
