This is the intermediate Noblet model 40 C Clarinet, made by Leblanc, France, in very good condition. All parts are made of finest Grenadilla wood, unlike some of the cheaper models in the Noblet range. The matching serial nos. are B97262, the wood has no cracks or repairs, though there are a couple of small chips to the lower tenon of the upper joint, see photo 3. The Nickel plate throughout is in fine condition, with no discernable wear. This instrument was made with Leblanc's usual excellence, and features gold plated springs to resist corrosion. We have just fully overhauled the instrument in double bladder fish skin pads, and the clarinet is sold with our full 1 year warranty. The bore, in common with all other Leblanc made C clarinets, is 14.50mm. The instrument tunes exceptionally well with the supplied Vandoren 5RV mouthpiece. The case is the original in good condition, there are some slight stains to the interior and exterior scuffs. The handle has also been repaired with black tape.
