Selmer 200

Thanks to Sarah F. for giving me the opportunity to review this model, which is just the chrome key version of the gold 220. Sorry I didn't take pictures of this one, but the keys are like the Signet series or other Selmers.


Serial  #22543, 18Dec2013

Barrel:   63.7mm   (Short! That’s why I can play this in tune!)

Bore LH joint top:  14.75mm

Bore LH joint at bottom:  14.4 poly-cylindrical!


Intonation results taken when playing loud and not lipping. See how to interpret these results on the Model Comparison Page.


For this test, I pulled 1.1mm  at the barrel and 0.2mm  at the center tenon.

Intonation summary: Wonderful. The flatness in the throat tones is because of loud playing and no adjusting.

This clarinet is most appropriate for: Anyone. This plays with professional level intonation.


Condition issues noted: zero
