Leblanc Extended Range Paperclip Metal Contra Alto Clarinet Serial #519
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 need a adjustment to be back in top playing condition. The pads are in older used condition. There are two key guards missing one at the bottom of the instrument and one next to the peg mount and they are 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.
Instrument Condition: The overall physical condition of this used instrument is good to very good.
Playing Condition: This instrument is currently in non-playing condition but it does kind of play. It has been sitting for multiple years and should be adjusted before it would be considered in top playing condition.
