Leblanc, LL, B Flat Clarinet
This a fine condition Leblanc LL Bb clarinet, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The Leblanc LL, was named after Leon Leblanc, George's son and was Leblanc's foremost professional model. 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.

The instrument has good condition fish skin pads throughout, most are lightly used, with some brand new. The supplied m'piece is an "as new" Yamaha 4C, and the Buffet Prestige case is in excellent condition.
