Noblet, Artist, E Flat Clarinet
This is a very good condition Noblet Artist Eb clarinet, by Leblanc, which is an entry level professional instrument. This clarinet is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct, the former owner was Ian Mitchell, the well known clarinettist and Director of Gemini. The instrument has been used for numerous performances, recordings and broadcasts with most of the UK's leading orchestras. The wood condition overall is good, with only a few surface marks and scuffs, there are NO cracks or repairs. The instrument has just been completely re-padded in fish skin pads by ourselves and is sold with a full 1 year warranty. There is no joint wobble and the regulation is in fine order. The Nickel Silver plating is also in good condition, with only slight wear, mainly to the ring fingers. The m'piece is a Vandoren B44 and plays well with Vandoren No. 3 reeds. The original case, whilst much used is also in good condition. In summation this is an excellent value, well tuning Eb, with an impressive provenance.
