Noblet, by Lebanc, Artist C Clarinet
This is a Noblet Artist C Clarinet, made by Leblanc, in very good condition. This instrument is the professional Artist model 50 Noblet clarinet, with all parts made of finest unstained Grenadilla wood, unlike some of the cheaper models in the Noblet range. The matching serial nos. are A98767, making this example a very late production model, dating to the late 2000s. The Nickel Silver plate is in very good condition, with no discernible wear. The Grenadilla wood is in fine condition throughout with no cracks or damage. The instrument has lightly used fish skin pads, which are sealing well. The bore, in common with all other Leblanc made C clarinets, is 14.50mm. The instrument tunes well with the supplied original Noblet mouthpiece, but will also play well with any modern standard French bore m'piece. This means most players can play their regular Bb m'piece successfully. The case is the original in very good condition. In summation; this is a fine tuning C, an entry level professional model, which would match well with the finest French instruments currently available.
