Contra Bass

By Beckie

from Michigan

Comments about Leblanc Model 7182 Contrabass Clarinet:

I've played contra bass for five years and the only thing about this instrument is that it is extremely fragile. You have to be especially careful when transferring it to and from and putting it back in the case, because the keys will bend easily. But because of the "low" cost, this is a good instrument for a high school band. If you are just looking for a contra to play on low cost, than this is the instrument for you.

Awesome Clarinet

By Nicolas Ford

from San Jose

Comments about Leblanc Model 7182 Contrabass Clarinet:

I have recently bought a Vito 7128 contrabass clarinet and I love it! I have only played the contrabass clarinet for 6 months in my band and it has changed the whole sound of the band completely. My band does scales before we play our musical selections, and I wondered what it would be like if I "wasn't there" or in other words, wasn't playing. The band played the first five notes, and I joined in for the last notes and BOY!!! WAS THERE A DIFFERENCE!!!!! It adds a lot to the bass and low end section. Without it, I don't think my band would have the dark rich sound it has now. The clarinet itself is sorta hard to go over the break, although the music hardly calls for it. All in all, it's a great buy. I suggest it for beginners and professionals. I LOVE CONTRABASS CLARINETS!!!!!!!!!

not good

By L-MiuI4

Comments about Leblanc Model 7182 Contrabass Clarinet:

unless this instrument is in top condition, it will not play well. I have encountered problems moving it across the break when on other there is no problem.

Nice tone, problems may relate to instrument's massive size and my ability

By Dhanuba Smith

from Cleveland, Ohio

Comments about Leblanc Model 7182 Contrabass Clarinet:

I picked up a contrabass of this brand that was owned by my school. The massive instrument, about 6 1/2 ft. tall, is rather cumbersome and difficult to transport (doesn't fit into my car very well), but that's probably true of all non-"paperclip" contras (the metal ones that double around are called "paperclip" and are probably a bit easier to transport.) The instrument itself has a stunning lower register extending to the lowest D-flat on the piano. Playing over the break is difficult on this behemoth; though do-able, in this register it probably doubles bass clarinet parts. Difficult to play there. But, that might be just because of the instrument size. Or because I'm not too talented at contra. The biggest problem with the contrabass clarinet, besides the transportation problems, are the cost of reeds and other accessories. This instrument plays well. I'll admit, it is the only contra I have ever tried, but I was not disappointed. And, man, that low D flat...
