D Noblet, Plateau B Flat Clarinet
A rare early D Noblet, Paris France, Plateau B flat clarinet. This is a professional model Noblet, with a covered hole 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 made of German Silver, is in excellent condition, with no wear. The wood throughout is in good condition, with no cracks or repairs. 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 8100D. The case is of modern pouchette type, & the mouthpiece is Selmer C85 115 in very good condition [ NB not pictured]. 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".
