It is most likely that this Noblet Bb Clarinet was manufactured by Leblanc under the Noblet name. In 1904, Noblet was sold to G. Leblanc, who continued to manufacture under the Noblet name for quite some time, while also making Leblanc clarinets. The "tv screen" shaped logo marks this instrument likely as a moden "N" made in the early 1960's, but there is little history to be found about these clarinets outside of online forums.
This Noblet Bb Clarinet would be a solid option for the advancing student who is looking to play a wooden clarinet vs a plastic one. Players with experience with this clarinet recommend it for intermediate to advanced students looking for an upgrade. Its construction and key style is very similar to Selmer's clarinets of the time, and this one in particular is in great shape, even for over 50 years old! Its engravings and logos are still very much intact, and its keys, while slightly worn, still carry a good shine. Our professional woodwind technician gave it all the proper adjustments and replaced all necessary pads/corks to get it into playing condition. It's got a nice warm sound, and an even nicer price tag. Stop by Horn Stash today to check it out!
