LEBLANC, ESPRIT, Bb CLARINET, 945

A very good condition Leblanc, France, Esprit Bb clarinet, in Grenadilla wood. 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 the Ab/Eb key. 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, though the thumb rest has been moved higher, and the old screw holes left unfilled. The Silver plate key work is in very good condition, with no wear. All pieces are original and having matching stamps, apart from an additional shorter barrel. We have just completely overhauled the instrument in finest Pisoni fish skin pads, with the exception of the register key which is in cork, and the instrument is sold with our full 1 year warranty. The matching serial nos. are 79987. The supplied m'piece is a Vandoren B45 in very good condition. The case is the original Leblanc, with exterior zippable pouch for accessories.
