BASS CLARINET ROBERT MALERNE GRENADILLA WOOD
4 STAR PROFESSIONAL MODEL circa 1960s.
This is the same as the high end Conn wooden bass clarinets of the 1950s, and the same as the Marigaux bass clarinets of the late 1970s. Malerne made exquisite English horns, bass clarinets, and saxophones. Marigaux bought Malerne in 1976 and continued making the same Malerne model instruments.
This bass clarinet has been completely overhauled by legendary repairman Paul Woltz. Paul is a professional wind doubler and his own personal bass clarinet is this same model Malerne, though it is stenciled ''Conn''
The wood is in fabulous condition- few scratches, dings, gouges,or scrapes. One tiny micro surface crack just below the tenon band on the lower joint- finely repaired and nearly invisible. Two minor dings of little consequence near the bow of the bell.
According to Paul: ''This bass plays beautfully.''
Has one Van Doren mouthpiece. Comes with a functional case in good condition.
