The new Conn-Selmer, Inc. warranty policy went into effect October 1, 2005 for Dealer purchases. Dealer instrument purchases prior to this date are covered under the warranty card shipped with that instrument.

If a customer does not have a warranty card, the warranty terms in effect for that item would be as of the purchase date for the end user. Conn-Selmer reserves the sole right to identify correct warranty terms.

General Limited Warranty
Henry Selmer of Paris warrants that this instrument is free from defects in manufacturing, material and workmanship for one year. During the warranty period, and upon proof of purchase, Selmer (Paris) will, at its option, either replace or repair a defective instrument or defective part should manufacturing defects become apparent during that time. Repair or replacement as provided under this warranty is your exclusive remedy.

Cracking of natural wood instrument bodies on piccolos, double reeds and clarinets may occur due to environmental conditions and would most likely not be viewed as defective. However natural wood instrument bodies deemed defective will be repaired or replaced during the warranty period.

This Warranty also gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state.

Warranty Does Not Include
This Warranty does not apply to instruments sold through dealers not authorized to do so by Conn-Selmer, Inc., the North American distributor of Selmer (Paris) instruments. This warranty does not cover instruments that have been used previously and is not transferable.

This Warranty does not apply to any damage that, in the warrantors judgment, has been brought about by repair or alteration done by a repairman not specifically authorized to do so in writing by the warrantor, misuse, negligence, accident, or failure to reasonably and properly maintain the instrument. Selmer (Paris) may offer to repair such damage, at its discretion, upon acceptance of repair charges by the instrument owner.

This warranty does not apply to shipping damage. Please contact the carrier for resolution of damage due to shipping.

This Warranty does not apply to plating or lacquer impairments caused by the acids inherent in the systems of some persons. It is recommended that the purchaser remove fingerprints from the instrument by wiping it clean with a soft flannel cloth as often as possible to avoid such impairments. Pads, felts, springs and corks are also excluded from this Warranty, as are external causes such as extreme temperature or humidity.

This Warranty shall not extend to consequential damages, which include but are not limited to loss of use of the instrument, inconvenience, or loss of revenues incurred by purchaser, unless otherwise provided for by applicable state laws.

Purchasers Responsibilities
Remedies guaranteed by this Warranty are contingent upon purchasers allowing a full inspection by Selmer (Paris), or Conn-Selmer, Inc, or its duly authorized representative, of any alleged defective parts. Purchaser should retain this Warranty card and the original proof of purchase for presentation to the authorized dealer from whom the instrument was purchased; in the event service is required under the Warranty. If this is not possible, please contact Conn-Selmer at P.O. Box 310, Elkhart, Indiana 46515 USA.

Purchase must have a Return Authorization Number prior to returning the instrument to Conn-Selmer. Postage, insurance and secure packing for the return of instruments for Warranty repair or replacement is the responsibility of the owner. Conn-Selmer will pay return charges for shipment back to the customer for approved warranty claims only. Any notice under this Warranty shall be made in writing to Conn-Selmer, Inc., P.O. Box 310, Elkhart, Indiana 46515 USA.

Step away from the mainstream! November 21, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Fort Worth, Texas  
This is absolutely the best sounding non custom Bb clarinet I have heard to date!  It has the resonance and depth of the best A clarinets and contrary to other reviews it plays with a wide dynamic range.  Intonation is as close as I've seen on a wood horn and it has amazing response.  The thicker wall throughout does make this instrument a bit heavier than other wood instruments but the sound produced will simply amaze you.  This is what the clarinet should sound like!
