G LEBLANC, BASSET HORN in F, HUNTRISS COLLECTION, 3995

This is an excellent condition Leblanc Basset Horn, model 315S, in Grenadilla wood, to low C, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The current owner is an Mike Huntriss, who purchased this instrument from Scottish National Opera, [the original owners] as he regularly played it for their productions. The Buffet and Leblanc Basset Horn designs are essentially modified Alto clarinets, the larger bore favours orchestral use. This instrument is in excellent condition: NO cracks, or damage, with pristine silver plated key work throughout. The Bassset Horn has white leather pads throughout in very good condition. A floor spike is included. This instrument will play perfectly out of the box, & the matching serial nos. are 9687. It responds with a large even tone, ideal for Strauss Operas or, as Mike, has often used it, in the Mozart Requiem or Grand Partita for 13 Winds. A comparable Buffet retails today new for 7000. The original m'piece is in good condition,and plays well with a Vandoren 2 or 2.5 reed.
