NOBLET, PARIS, PROFESSIONAL BASS CLARINET, 1495

This is a fine condition Noblet, by Leblanc, Paris, Bass Clarinet in Grenadilla wood, to low Eb. This is a model 60, the entry level professional Bass made by Leblanc. All the Nickel Silver key work is in very good condition, with only slight spot wear. There are no cracks to the wood, but it does show minor surface scuffs. The crook & bell are both in good condition with only very slight scratches, the plating is excellent on both. There is a floor peg attachment to the bell. The Bass has finest Pisoni Premium Deluxe white Leather pads throughout, which are all in very good condition. The instrument has been down to our workshop for a thorough "check down" with touch corks replaced as necessary, and also for regulation. The matching serial nos. are 5099, which dates to the 1960's. The case is a Pro-tech in very good used condition. The m'piece is an up-grade to a professional Selmer, Paris, which has had sellotape attached to the back to stop the Rovner ligature scratching the ebonite. This Bass plays easily with a fine tone and good intonation. It would suit a professional looking for a reasonably priced entry level wooden Bass. A comparable model Amati Bass now retails new for 4220.
