LeBlanc Symphonie 3
Bb Soprano Clarinet

Serial Number 889B

SOLD - Oct. 2012

Manufacture dates to the very early sixties (because that's when the original owner bought it!)
There's a lot of information on Leblancs HERE at the "Clarinet Perfection" website.
This was a top of the line LeBlanc clarinet from the early 1960's handcrafted by the Noblet/ LeBlanc French craftsmen. This is a big bore design in competition with the Selmer Centered Tone models of the period.
LeBlanc also produced the Dynamic/Dynamique series concurrently (they morphed into the Pete Fountain models which may still be made).
These latter were the REAL big smooth bore models as opposed to the Symphonie which are all-around and orchestral models.

Raw nickel silver keywork, full Boehm configuration without the extension to low Eb.

Lovely old, dense grenadilla wood. No cracks, splits or chips. No repairs to the wood.

It has a lovely rich tone.
