Cg Conn Articulated Albert Special Mod Clarinet 1905-06 Selmer Paris Case Nice For SaleThis sale is for a very special CG Conn articulated Albert system clarinet. Marked with serial number A9718H on both body sections, indicating it is a high pitch A clarinet. This instrument is shown side-by-side with a vintage CG Conn low pitch Bb clarinet in the last photo, and as you can see, it is very similar in length. If you are not familiar with the term "high pitch", versus "low pitch" instruments, please do some reading online or email me for more information so you will not be confused or disappointed with your purchase.
The upper body has a union stamp which reads:OUR LABEL / MPB / PIU /FACTORY 34. The bell is engraved beautifully with:MADE BY /C.G. Conn/ ELKHART, IND. Based on serial number and info charts, this clarinet was made around 1905-06. This clarinet has been stored away for a very long time--likely, it seems, due to the missing barrel (further info below)--and will need cleaning and service, including pads. It is in beautiful vintage condition, and is a hard rubbermaterial, not wood. In seeking info on this clarinet I could find only one similar example anywhere online--where a Bb version is described and shown on the "clarinet pages"website here: barrel came with this clarinet, but a cuffed ring part from the original barrel was included. This metal part was on the upper body, as shown in pic 8, when received. It is a match for the one on the clarinet's bell shown in photo 7, and seems clearly to be the lower ring part on the instrument's missing original barrel.The clarinet comes in the older, used Selmer Paris Chesterfield zip case shown, a plain unmarked mouthpiece of unknown maker and age, and a neat older one-screw ligature. Case is in pretty good shape for its age, showing dirt and wear, but looks presentable and provides good protection.
