An instrument of consummate perfection.
The awe-inspiring flagship of the new line is the Leblanc Legacy Bb model LB110B. The Legacy design features an aged and highly figured grenadilla body with undercut, integral tone holes and two specially crafted Traditional Backun bells in both grenadilla and cocobolo woods. Both bells include Backun's signature wooden tenon ring. While grenadilla is the traditional wood of choice, a large number of players, including many of the world's finest performers and educators, prefer cocobolo bells as these offer a warm, rich tone that does not sacrifice projection of sound. Backun Traditional grenadilla and cocobolo barrels are both featured, as well. The wood-ringed barrels vibrate freely, giving the player a warm, resonant response with great articulation and superior tuning. A highly developed acoustical design of these instruments provides for greater individual expression, while the stunning keywork incorporates many unique features that expand the possibilities of performance. Balanced key suspension, 24K gold plated register and thumb tubes, post pivot locking screws, six adjustable key points, and other exclusive features offer today's finest players the best way to express their true individuality. The new Leblanc instruments are a fusion of artistry, technology and passion, designed by Morrie Backun. Director of product development for Leblanc professional clarinets, Backun is one of the most respected woodwind designers and technicians in the world today. He has worked with clients that include Ricardo Morales, David Shifrin, Eddie Daniels, James Campbell, Howard Klug, Julian Bliss, Sabine Meyer, Alessandro Carbonare, Wenzel Fuchs, Jessica Phillips, Larry Combs, and other renowned clarinetists.
