Question
Selmer bass clarinet  ser # V2983

Made in France

I bought in 1978 used.  Rosewood. well maintained,  no cracks, great sound. my favorite instrument.

Answer
Hello,
  According to my sources this horn was made in 1967.  Are you sure it's rosewood?  Most wood clarinets are made from Grenadilla wood.  I cannot place a value on the horn.  Check with a local music store that repairs band instruments to help with that.  I hope this helps.



Thanks,



Guy
