Matched Pair of Leblanc LL Clarinets
These are a very fine condition matched pair of enhanced Boehm 7 ring Leblanc LL clarinets, which are a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The 7 ring mechanism allows for a fork Eb/Bb in the LH, a most useful addition to the standard Boehm. The Leblanc LL, was named after Leon Leblanc, George's son. The design features an exceptionally even scale and intonation, and though introduced in the 1960s, was so successful that the model continued in manufacture right up until when the firm was sold to Buffet in 2009.
