I want to sell my antique LeBlanc, two-toned wood, b flat clarinet; original case and accessories included. I'm wondering what it's value is, and who I can contact to sell it?


We are looking between $450 and $550 for this clarinet. If you can find a Music Shop, they may be able to put this on consignment for you, or you can try Ebay. This is one I did find on Ebay: Joan

Was the LeBlanc clarinet on EBay also an antique, or was it a contemporary one?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I'm sorry, I gave you the incorrect manufacturer of the instrument!
It's a D. NOBLET (Made in Paris, France).
The original case is leather with brass snap locks, and grey velvet interior.
The number on the clarinet pieces is 4785.
I'd guess it's date as Early 1900.
I'd say the case and instrument are in FAIR condition, with no damage.

If you give me a few mins, I will have to see what I can find out about the Noblet. I used to play Clarinet, so It is of special interest. Joan

What a coincidence! Take your time, Joan!


I found some of the Noblet for sale, but the price range varies. I am going to give you the link as you can identify the clarinet with the pictures and it will give you an idea of price range:

The Alto Clarinets are bringing about $1600.

I have not played in about 40 years, but still remember my fingering and embouchure. Joan
