One of the most prolific clarinetists of the 20th century, Leblanc captured the sound and feeling of Pete Fountain's playing. This PF model clarinet is in excellent condition, pads were recently replaced and the keywork feels comfortable and fluid. It does not come with the original barrel, but an older Buffet 62MM barrel, providing the sound to cut through a big band or orchestra without much trouble and allowing doublers to stay in tune, rather than the traditional running flat. The PF also features an articulated G#, providing more comfort ergonomics and key fluidity. If you are looking for that flexible, powerful and fluid sound - this is the clarinet that you need to have.
