 Selmer depose
Author: rgoldem

I am trying to identify the model of a Selmer clarinet, serial P4977. There is nothing else to identify it other than the word Depose, which I guess does not help much. How can I identify its model? Is there any chance of being a Centered or Balanced Tone? Thanks in advance.

Looks like a Centered Tone, 1953-1954

If it's a P series and has a hexagonal speaker bush, it's definitely a Centered Tone.

Well worth having restored to full playing condition. I've never seen a dud, even with cracked top joints which can be repaired.

According to the clues given by windplr and Chris P it is really a Centered Tone. Could you please check the attached photos so I will be 100% sure? Any idea of how much it is worth? Thanks again.
