LEBLANC, ESPRIT, Bb CLARINET, 895

A mint condition special edition Leblanc Esprit Bb clarinet. Rather than the usual stamps, this instrument features a more ornate logo badge, as well as matching stamped ligature and cap, along with a rucksack, which has the clarinet case as part of an integral base. This clarinet was Leblanc's entry level professional wooden model, which features a polycylindrical bore design of 14.65mm. It was descibed by Leblanc as having a darker, and yet more flexible, sound than the slightly cheaper Sonata. It also features a separate post mounting for Ab/Eb. This model plays so well that it easily competes with a modern Buffet R13. This example has no damage or repairs to the wood, which is in excellent condition. The Silver plate key work is pristine, with no wear. All pieces are original and having matching stamps. We have just overhauled the instrument in finest Pisoni fish skin pads, and the instrument is sold with our full 1 year warranty. The matching serial nos. are 68692. The supplied m'piece is an upgrade to a Buffet C, in ebonite in very good condition.
