This Selmer 1430LP student plastic bass clarinet sounds great, is easy to play and is durable enough to hold up to student use. A one piece joint body and low Eb on the body mean there are no bridge keys to get out of adjustment during assembly. A new bore provides a deep, rich bass clarinet sound while proving very free blowing. The newly designed key work is quick, agile and more comfortable for smaller hands. Matched with a redesigned case that suspends the clarinet and offers extreme protection in the bandroom or on the road.
