So I've had my Series 9 b-flat clarinet for almost 40 years. I love my horn. About a year and a half ago, I picked up a ~very~ sad Series 9* Selmer A clarinet off of ebay. I dropped a cool $800 into the overhaul, but wow, was it worth it. This is a nice horn, and doesn't have the quirky intonation things with the low B that the Series 9 does.

That got me to thinking....hmm..

So I'm off, tonight to drive across the bay to try a Selmer Series 9* b-flat clarinet that was listed on Craigslist. We shall see!

I loved my Series 9* Bb clarinet -- every bit as good as my vintage 1960s Buffet R-13 Bb clarinet. They are excellent horns that can often be had for well below the prices of Buffets. I parted with mine only when I "thinned the herd" and wanted my Bb and A to have a more similar feel. Good for you for finding a Series 9* in A!

They are great clarinets!
I played one for years, searched for an A but to no avail :(
Pitch was excellent and it was probably the most even Clarinet I’ve ever had.
I have a Leblanc now, which has more punch but the pitch isn’t as good. I miss the Selmer to be honest
