A rare 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,
though there is some wear, mainly 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 B69964, and this clarinet has gold plated springs throughout.
The case is the original in good condition, as is the mouthpiece.
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".
