Vintage Noblet France Silver Metal Clarinet & Case















Up for auction comes this vintage NOBLET silver metal clarinet from Paris, France. From information I was able to obtain over the internet, this clarinet dates to around 1910. In fact, metal clarinets date to the very early 1800's and were very popular in the early 1900's. Most manufacturers stopped production in the 1930's. The Noblet metal clarinets are prized by jazz musicians today because of their high quality tones that rival newer intstruments. This clarinet appears to be 100% intact with all parts present! Since I am far from an expert on musical instruments I will describe this to the best of my ability. It appears that all the valves work as they should. The majority of the pads will need to be replaced which is a relatively inexpensive fix. The mouthpiece may or may not be original to the clarinet but fits perfectly. The clarinet is signed ''Noblet Paris France'' near the horn and has the serial number ''5413'' stamped on the reverse side.
 
The CONDITION of this vintage instrument is GOOD. As stated above, it will need new pads. Cosmetically, this is in remarkable condition with just one tiny ding. It will need to good cleaning and lubrication. The case is original to the instrument and includes the original key. As you can see from my photographs, the cloth exterior of the case is fraying on the corners. The interior of the case has a very rich cobalt blue velvet lining~
