LeBlanc BBb Paperclip Metal Contra Bass Clarinet Serial #401
Additional Information: We have had such great interest in contra clarinets for this Holiday season we are posting this as it is sitting at one of our repair shops. It has been polished and any pads that were needed were replaced and regulated. It is ready to go with a nice dark rich sound to it. This is a really great contra bass clarinet without extended range. The instrument is in great shape! It is at our repair shop and plays great up and down the register. Please make sure all loose fillings are checked before you play this instrument 🙂 This is a large instrument so please keep in mind that shippers sometimes are not as careful handling the boxes as we would all like them to be – especially around the holidays. Please anticipate that it may need a tweak when it gets to you if the shipping handlers are not super careful with the box. We will have it packed well inside the case and around the case in the box. It will only be up for the 3 day auction, no longer so that it can be purchased and shipped before the holidays!
