Leblanc L7 Clarinet
A clarinet from the 1970s that features a conical bore. It has nickel plated keys with some wear that has been polished smooth. It is repadded with tan leather pads. Comes with the original beige leather case which is worn but funcional. Sometimes known as a 'pearl dot' due to the mother of pearl inlay. Nice tone.
Boosey & Hawkes Edgware clarinet
This is an intermediate clarinet made from wood. The B&H range consisted of the student Regent followed by the Edgware and then the Emperor, with the professional Imperial models 926 and 1010. The Edgware is very similar to the Emperor. All the B&H clarinet have a wide bore of around 15mm which give them a nice deep tone.
This one has been fitted with white leather pads which have been in a while now but are still functional.
Berkeley Concert Series Clarinet
This is a beginner to intermediate level clarinet. It is made of wood but has an ebonite bell. It has been overhauled with new pads and corks fitted. Wood and keys have been polished and the nickel plating looks good.
The pieces go in a small brown case which is unlike a normal clarinet case.
Selmer Bundy clarinet
Used beginners instrument. Sturdy construction. A good reliable instrument.
I've repadded this now as some of the pads were looking a bit tired. It plays very well now and is a great choice for someone starting out on clarinet.
Comes with a good condition Selmer USA case.
Leblanc Vito clarinet
Very good beginners instrument. Better built than most.
These are the ones we recommend. They have a wider bore which gives a great sound and they are better made than any of the Chinese instruments offered today as beginners instruments.
Comes with its original case.
Boosey and Hawkes Regent
The B&H Regent is good reliable instrument for a beginner. Wide bore gives a warm tone
Selling on commission. This is a model that was used in schools for many years and we still see them in regular use. These are far more reliable than cheap Chinese instruments you can buy today.
This now has a set of new pads.
