After much thought and a bit of reluctance, I am selling my grandfather’s bass.

H. Selmer-Paris, Brevete S.G.D.G. Bass Clarinet, Serial #339 (Pre-1926) in the key of Bb, Bohem fingering system. Very difficult to find one this old.

“Designed by Arnold Brilhart” mouthpiece (Serial #OPEN 209- VERY RARE)
(Email jpicc1@aol.com for pics of the mouthpiece. This website is old and there was not enough space to upload more pictures)

Fully restored by Carl Chudy, of Mystic, CT.


Venmo, Apple Pay, Bitcoin, PayPal, and CashApp accepted.

Some irrelevant, but possibly interesting history:

This beautiful clarinet was owned by my late grandfather, Peter J Pumiglio (1904-1993) and I inherited it. My cousins have his flute & saxophones.

He was a member of the Raymond Scott Quintette (”Quintet” misspelled purposely because Raymond Scott thought it looked fancy) and the Raymond Scott Orchestra, from the mid-1930s until late 1950s, appearing in CBS radio, TV shows, and movies.

Peter was totally self-taught and also played soprano clarinet, Alto saxophone, and flute. He had two daughters with his wife, Mildred. Virginia, born in 1926, and Patricia (my mother), born in 1942.

I’m hoping this clarinet will go to somebody who will appreciate it and, hopefully, play it or display it. It should not be in my closet, not being played or shown off.

Here is a link to one movie he appeared in, jamming away on his soprano clarinet! (Albert System)

Wait for the really cool solo! He was totally self-taught and also played bass clarinet, tenor saxophone, and flute. Many more Raymond Scott Quintette and Raymond Scott Orchestra videos and audio can be found on YouTube.
