||An excellent condition Bb 1010 clarinet, wood and silver keys are both in excellent condition. No cracks, but there are barely visible two filled holes where the thumb rest has been moved. Andy Roberts, the internationally aclaimed clarinet soloist and repairer (ARCS) has improved the C#/G# by removing and fitting a custom tone hole and reshaping the key,(an improvement he has made on his own instrument), improving the quality of this note considerably. Andy has also made adjustments to the key work to make it feel more like a Buffet. This is a very free blowing 1010 which I have used for sometime specifically on orchestral and radio work. It has been a second instrument to my main instrument which I use specifically for big band, jazz and radio work. It is offered in an 80's Buffet case, together with a bored out Vandoren B46 mouthpiece and a BH 1010 number 2 mouthpiece. These instruments were the choice of most principle orchestral clarinettists during the 50's - 80's and command a cult following.The instrument can be viewed and tried in Liverpool at Andrew Roberts studio. The 1010 mouthpiece is with me in Leicestershire. Peter Eaton modelled his Big bore Elite clarinet on the 1010 so view this instrument as a much cheaper alternative with similiar sound.
