Leblanc Dynamic 2

Many thanks to Dale Smotherman for giving me the opportunity to review this clarinet.


Serial  #??194 This clarinet was probably stolen at some point long ago. Someone defaced the serial numbers on both the LH and RH joints! The first letter could be a 1 or another letter with a straight back.

Barrel:   66.6mm

Bore LH joint top:  14.8mm

Bore LH joint at bottom:  15.0mm The difference here does not look good. This is the wrong direction for a poly-cylindrical instrument.

Intonation summary: This is really great intonation for a non-poly-cylindrical clarinet.


Key work quality: Excellent, as is typical for this brand.


This clarinet is most appropriate for: Anyone, even a college clarinet major.


Condition issues noted: It’s in great shape other than the defacing of the serial numbers.
