This pair of Leblanc Noblet Plateau Bb (model 45) & A (N model) clarinets are the ideal choice for the player with smaller hands or medical conditions such as arthritis as it removes the obstacle of having to cover the open tone holes.
It is rare to find one in the key of A so this pair would be very well suited to orchestral playing. The pair is slightly unmatched with the Bb being a Noblet 45 (formally the 'Artist') and the A an N Model.
The Noblet 45 was considered Leblanc's upper intermediate clarinet and is comparable with the modern Buffet E13 clarinets. They are completely wooden apart from the barrel on the A clarinet which is made of resin.
The age of these clarinets is unknown but they are in excellent condition. These clarinets continued to be manufactured by Leblanc right up until they ceased manufacture in 2009. It was described by them as "specifically designed for the younger player, doubler or even the arthritic player who may have difficulty covering the standard open-tone-hole".
