serial number list for Selmer (Paris) clarinets



Selmer (Paris) clarinets
Professional clarinets since 1885
The Series: is the letter in the serial number itself and not the model Series.
Example: Selmer, Series 10S, #B0478 is a B Series made in 1980.
We have no information on Selmer clarinets made before the L Series

There is no definitive information available as to when particular types of instruments, such as
"Radio Improved", "Model 55", "Balanced Tone", etc., began insofar as serial number is concerned.
Unlike some of the saxophone models, each clarinet is clearly marked as to it's model,
though I believe I've seen a few exceptions in the clarinets of the late 1930's.
