NOBLET, BY LEBLANC, PROFESSIONAL ALTO CLARINET, 1195

This is a good condition Noblet, Paris, Alto Clarinet in Grenadilla wood, to low Eb. The Nickel Silver plated key work shows wear to the ring finger touchpieces, the plating is about 90%. There are no cracks or damage to the wood, with only minor surface marks and scratches. In the past the instrument was linked together as a one piece Alto with two plates on both joints, and the screw holes from these plates have been filled. The crook, which is sleeved and adjustable, shows some wear and has an old solder repair, see photo 4. The bell is a replacement from a Leblanc Vito,and this shows much signs of use, with many small dings and scratches. The Alto has Pisoni Premium Deluxe Tan Leather pads in good condition throughout, they are all sealing well. The matching serial nos. are 4546, which dates to the 1970's. The case is the original with scuffs to the exterior and some wear to the interior lining, but still fully serviceable, both the latches and handle have been replaced. The m'piece is an upgrade to Selmer C* in very good condition, which plays very easily.
