Vintage Leblanc LL Professional Clarinet For Sale!
One of several professional clarinets we are offering for sale. This is a vintage 1971 Leblanc LL model—one of Leblanc’s most popular, longest-running models ever. S/n 347XX. It is in exceptional condition: wood is a gorgeous billet of grenadilla with a tight, straight grain and no chips, cracks, or repairs. Tenons are nice and square, with no wobble between joints. Upper tenon has an original metal ring to prevent cracking. Phosphor bronze springs. Nickel plating about 99.9% with little if any wear at all. Appears to have been very recently overhauled, with pads which are very new and white, and tenon corks which also look very recent. Just through our shop where it had some very minor adjustments and a couple of key corks replaced. Plays very nicely with a big, open sound, and better intonation and focus than most R13’s. Includes a Boveda 2-way humidity control, and a classy hard case which I assume is the original. One of the nicest LL’s we’ve ever owned—a great professional clarinet at half the cost of an R13, and just in time for Christmas!
