Leblanc Extended Range Paperclip Metal Contra Alto Clarinet Serial #312
Additional Information: This is a really great contra alto clarinet with extended range. The neck hook ring is off and not included. The instrument is in great shape! It recently came back from our repair shop and plays great up and down the register. It could use a little bit of a polish if you wanted to do that but it is in really nice shape with a nice dark rich sound to it. 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 pack it well inside the case and around the case in the box.
