Leblanc Extended Range Paperclip Metal Contra Alto Clarinet Serial #275
Additional Information: This is a really great contra alto clarinet with extended range. It has been sitting for a couple of years so even though it does kind of play we are selling it in non-playing condition as it will likely need a adjustment to be in top playing condition. There are a few pads that may need to be replaced as there are rips on the edges of them. There is a key guard missing at the bottom of the instrument and it is not included. As you can see in pictures the clarinet could use a good buff and polish. Once up and playing these Leblanc contra alto clarinets are super fun instruments to play and have a really great sound to them. This is the third one we have posted for sale and the last one that we have!
