A rare very good condition Noblet, Paris France, Plateau B flat clarinet.
This is an intermediate model Noblet, with a
mechanism, i.e. plateau.
Unlike some of the cheaper models in the range, this clarinet is made entirely from Grenadilla wood.
All the key work, which is plated in Nickel Silver, is in good condition,
with only slight wear to the "ring finger" touchpieces.
The wood throughout is in good condition, with no cracks or repairs,
there are only minor surface scuffs and marks, associated with normal use.
The clarinet has just been overhauled in Pisoni Premium De-luxe fish skin pads,
and is sold with our full 1 year warranty.
The matching serial nos. are B32163.
The case is the original in fair condition, there is one slight tear to the interior lining,
but it latches and protects the instrument well.
The mouthpiece is a used Vandoren B45, which tunes the clarinet very well.
This clarinet continued to be manufactured by Leblanc
right up until they ceased manufacture in 2009. It was described by them as "specifically
designed for the younger player, doubler or even the arthritic player who
may have difficulty covering the standard open-tone-hole".
