<Dan Leeson enquired about the value of a Leblanc Ab clarinet.>

Leblanc does offer an Ab any more on their website, but Freeport Music
http://www.musicalinstruments.com/Categories.asp?Category=Clarinets&Family=LL
Is selling a new Leblanc LL Model 1176AFS Ab for $4789 (ouch!). They also
have the 1176DS D clarinet for $3742 (another ouch!).

Unless your a member of the Carbinieri Band of Rome, why would one want an
Ab? I heard this Roman Police band many years ago in the Piazza San Marco
in Venice. They used two (!) Ab clarinets, and they sounded beautiful. I
guess if they didn't, they would be farmed out to another band or shot at
sunrise.

Seriously, I've thought about buying one... just because! Several Italian
clarinet makers produce one.
