Hi again L P, I take shortcuts in E-M's too often, I'm sure, SO, L L is Leon Leblanc, founder of the Leblanc cl making. I believe he was a skilled player and know he was an extraordinary innovator-technician, producing many US, and I'm sure French [other countries?], patented inventions. His early major pat is US 1,926,489 [1933] [US class/subclass 84/382 "clarinets"], so it expired in 1950, and others made use/revised-improved? his contributions to our beloved instrument. I had the privelege of examining one model [of a few] utilizing most of this pat's features, and communicating it to Dr. Debbi Reeves of USD's Natl. Music Museum, who writes the "Historically Speaking" in the ICA Journal, which will be published shortly. You can view [copy/search if you wish] this and other patents at the Google/Patents and/or USPTO sites, one of my hobbies. 'Nuff?, Don

Thanx, Mark, Don
