Leblanc, Infinite, B Flat Clarinet
A good condition Leblanc Infinite Bb clarinet. The Leblanc Infinite is virtually identical in specification and design to the Leblanc Concerto: Whereas the Concerto was designed to play firmly down to pitch throughout all registers [aimed primarily at the USA market] the Infinite was designed to play slightly sharper in the altissimo register; perhaps a more traditional European model!
This instrument is one of Leblanc's top professional wooden models, it features the same poly-cylindrical bore design, of 14.61mm, as the Opus and Concerto. It was made with all of Leblanc's usual engineering excellence; with gold plated needle springs, separate pillar mounted Ab/Eb, and aged unstained Grenadilla wood. This Bb has no damage or repairs to the wood, which is in excellent condition throughout. The Silver plate key work is in good condition, with some slight wear to the RH finger rings. All pieces are original & all have matching stamps. The pads are used fish skin, but sealing well. This Bb has matching serial nos. 70183. The supplied m'piece is a professional Vandoren 5RV in ebonite, in used condition. The case is an excellent ProTech with integral music pouch, in very good condition.
