This is an GREAT PLAYING CONDITION LeBLANC NOBLET NORMANDY " FULL PLATEAU SYSTEM " "CLOSED HOLE" B-flat Clarinet. Serial # 6659. It is COMPLETE & "READY TO PLAY". THE CLARINET HAS BEEN COMPLETELY CLEANED, POLISHED AND ALL KEYS ARE IN GREAT WORKING ORDER. ALL PADS AND CORK ARE NEW OR IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. IT COMES WITH A MOUTHPIECE, SILVER CAP & LIG. , 2 NEW REEDS, 1 NEW CORKGREASE, A NEW PULL THROUGH CLEANING SWAB, A POLISH CLOTH AND A BROWN LEATHER-WOOD CASE. THIS IS A "RESONITE" MODEL PLATEAU WITH SILVER-NICKEL PLATED KEYS. IT IS IN EXCELLENT PLAYING CONDITION. THE KEY SILVER PLATING IS IN GOOD CONDITION BUT DOES HAVE WEAR IN THE CENTER OF THE MAIN KEYS. OVERALL THIS CLARINET LOOKS GREAT AND PLAY'S EXCELLENT. THE CASE IS A BROWN WOOD / VINAL CASE WITH BROWN INNER LINING. THE OUTSIDE OF THE CASE IS IN GOOD CONDITION BUT DOES HAVE SOME WEAR AND SCRATCHES. THE INSIDE LINING OF THE CASE IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH SOME WEAR AND CORKGREASE STAINS. THE CLARINET AND CASE LOOK VERY GOOD OTHER THAT A FEW VERY LIGHT SCRATCHES AND SOME KEY VERY LIGHT PLATING WEAR.

IT IS A VERY EASY, GREAT PLAYING CLARINET, HOWEVER PLEASE DO NOT EXPECT THIS CLARINET TO PLAY AND HAVE AS LIGHT OF ACTION AS A BUFFET R-13. THESE CLARINETS HAVE THERE OWN PLAYING STYLE. IT DOES TAKE A LITTLE EXTRA PRESURE ON THE EXTRA PADDED AND SPRING LOADED KEYS, ESPECIALLY THE LEFT HAND THUMB. YOU DO HAVE TO HOLD ALL THE KEYS CLOSED FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS BEFORE PLAYING THE INSTRUMENT TO SEAT AND LEVEL OUT THE NORMANALLY OPEN PADS. ONCE YOU GET USE TO PLAYING THESE, THEY PLAY GREAT.

IT COMES COMPLETE WITH, MOUTHPIECE, SILVER LIG.& SILVER PLATED CAP, 2 NEW REEDS, CORKGREASE, A POLISHING CLOTH, AND A BLACK VINAL-WOOD CASE.

THESE PLATEAU CLARINETS WERE BUILT IN THE LeBLANC FACTORY IN THE USA IN ABOUT 1960'S AND DISTRIBUTED IN THE US BY LeBLANC. THIS IS A "RESONITE" MODEL, NOT THE NEWER 140P "VI-PLEX" MODEL. THIS MODEL IS THE CLOSEST SOUNDING TO THE WOOD MODEL PLATEAU. THE KEYS ARE SILVER PLATED OVER NICKEL CAST. IT HAS A GREAT TONE QUALITY.
AS PER LEBLANC INC.,THERE WERE VERY FEW OF THESE CLARINETS MADE DUE TO THE HIGH COST TO BUILD THEM. THEY COST ALMOST 4 TIMES AS MUCH AS A REGULAR CLARINET TO BUILD BECAUSE OF THE EXTRA KEYS AND MECHANISMS TO MAKE THE WORK. THEY ARE ONLY BUILT AS A SPECIAL ORDER. ALL HOLE ARE COVERED AND PADDED INCLUDING THE THUMB KEY. REGULAR CLARINETS HAVE 7 OPEN HOLES. OVER ALL THIS CLARINET AND CASE ARE IN EXCELLENT APPEARENCE AND PLAYING CONDITION. IT IS USED AND MAY HAVE SOME VERY SMALL SCRATCHES AND NICKS.
