Mr. Wallace sent these pictures of his really neat Normandy 8 with Stubbins mechanism.
It is all wood. It is similar to the Vito Stubbins reviewed here in that the Stubbins logo is stamped into the joint. The Noblet Stubbins (see related page) has the Stubbins logo on a metal slug sunk into the wood.
As with all LeBlanc products, the keyword is quite sturdy and quality is high.
This clarinet currently resides in the collection of Mr. Wallace.
