An excellent condition Leblanc Esprit Bb clarinet, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. This instrument was bought new in 2008 by a professional player, and as Leblanc were bought by Buffet in 2009, this is one of the last Esprit manufactured. This clarinet is 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 in pristine condition. All pieces are original and having matching stamps. We have regulated the instrument as necessary, the fish skin pads, whilst not new, are all sealing well, and all touch and tenon corks are fine also. The matching serial nos. are 85627. The supplied m'piece is an "as new" Leblanc K10M. The case is the original, in superb condition.
