Clarinet/Selmer Signet soloist clarinet
My daughter bought a Selmer Signet Soloist clarinet a few years ago from her music tutor. She has not played it in about 2 yrs so I am going to sell it. It is marked "Elkhart, IN" and USA. and a number 18175. I need to know more info so that I know what I am talking about. Is it wood? From what I read all these are wood. Also, any ideas on an aprx year? Is it bad that the mouthpiece is different? It is a Woodwind Steel Ebonite B7. Does this affect the price alot? Thanks so much if you can help educate me a little.
I have looked and I cannot verify the production date of this horn. I see quite a few online selling for about $350-400. The mouthpiece is more of a personal choice. I wouldn't worry much about that in selling the horn. Ebonite is a type of plastic composite. I have rarely come across a Selmer clarinet that has disappointed me. I would recommend taking it to a repair shop to be checked and regulated. If they charge for polishing then you could do it with a simple cleaning cloth(no need to add any cleaner). Avoid getting the horn wet and be sure to clean out the case and polish the outside with a cloth and a cleaner that will work on plastic or leather, if the case is covered. I hope this helps.
