The Leblanc Sonata is a first level upgrade wooden Bb Clarinet on par with the Yamaha 650 or Buffet E13 level of instruments. It probably sits somewhere between the first step and the second step up ranges.

Designed and produced in the famous Leblanc France factory (before it's closure in the late 2000's) the Sonata was always a great choice for the advancing clarinettist wanting a high quality first upgrade wooden model but without breaking the bank. It has a solid, rich and even tone across the range and would be ideal for Grade 4/5 upgraders.

This particular example has been very well cared for and is in nice clean condition. The wood is in great order and so is the keywork. This model also benefits from metal tenon sockets which adds stability to the actual body, a little more density to the sound and can help prevent cracking.

In summary this is an ideal first upgrade wooden model that if it was available new would be around £1,200-£1,300 or so. The Leblanc clarinets always had a very avid following from certain players and teachers and arguably they make a more 'interesting' sound than some of the current upgrade equivalents.
