I PLAY LEBLANC LL’S AND A NOBLET ARTIST C AND AM THINKING OF CHANGING TO SELMER ARTYS THAT I UNDERSTAND ARE PRETTY GOOD. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
——————————————————————Yes, they are pretty good, even better; let us say they are very good. While I have not tried one for any length of time, Selmer makes a wonderful clarinet and this is the top of their line.
The end of the story is how they compare with your Leblanc LLs, a lovely instrument, highly underrated, and one of the finest contemporary instruments as far as sound,feel and tuning ever made.
They are alas not made anymore and the company is now sold to Selmer-Conn.
They will probably appreciate considerably, and you may not be able to replace them. Consider well any change you may wish to make.
How much better than a good LL can you get? In the end , it is for you to decide.
