 Need a key for Leblanc Symphonie 2
Author: david1675

I've been a member of this board for a while, but I don't post often. I repair clarinets as a hobby and to be able to work on my own when needed. I have a Leblanc Symphonie 2 that I am working on for a fellow player in our local community band. The horn hadn't been touched in more than 20 years. The last person to work on the horn didn't do a very good job (in my humble opinion). Anyway, the left hand E/B spatula key is unusable and needs replacing. I have a Penzel-Mueller key that is close, but a proper one would be best.

Would anyone here on the board happen to have a left hand E/B spatula key that would work on a Leblanc Symphonie 2?

There is a very good chance that if you buy a Vito clarinet that many of the keys will be very close. These can be had for $20-$50 at shopgoodwill

If you get a 7214 it is very likely.

Yes, I had thought of that. I have a Vito 7214. The keys are very similar except for the right hand E/B key. It is a pin in hole key on the Symphonie. It's not a pin in hole key on the Vito 7214.

Thanks anyway for the advice. I've been scouring both Goodwill and the 'other' auction site. No luck so far.

You might check to see if the pair of keys (the touch part and the pad part) would fit, and just give up on the pin...

The Penzel Mueller key worked after some careful filing. Thanks for your help.
