Greetings,

I've recently picked up Bass Clarinet as an amateur player and I've been renting one for a couple of months now.

I saw this Leblanc Paris for an affordable within budget price (1.2k max)
but I don't have enough experience to identify the register system.

Also, it is a 1 piece body. Does that affect anything other than transportation?

Thank you all in advance!

Hi,
the Leblanc has a "simple register key" with the automatic better "Bb" tonehole.
I don´t think it´s a one bodypiece. Maybe the tenon is not in well condition.
1.2 k is the prise in well conditions

Antonio,

Where are you at? Is the price quoted in euros, pounds, or dollars? Does the clarinet come with a case?

Be aware that this bass clarinet does not have a floor peg. It will be more difficult to play with just a neck strap, especially considering the weight of wooden bass clarinets.

It's not a one piece body. A loose tenon cork may bind the pieces together, or there is some other problem.
