This is another one of my blended instruments. LH #D70913RH #D71879Barrel: 64.6mm Ridenour barrelBore LH joint top: 14.8mmBore LH joint at bottom: 14.8mm
[25Apr2013: Serial #A35532 measures and plays like it is poly-cylindrical. It came with a barrel stamped 66, and which also actually measures 66mm. The Noblet brochure I have however states that the Noblet 45, 40 and 4 all have the standard clinidrical bore. To me it looks like someone grabbed this joint off of the pile which had received the extra poly-bore.]
Intonation results taken when playing loud and not lipping. See how to interpret these results on the Model Comparison Page.
For this test, I pulled a tiny amount at the barrel and at the middle.
Intonation summary: This model is evidently not poly-cylindrical. It has quite good intonation though. [25Apr2013 #A35532 is poly-cylindrical.]
Key work quality: Excellent, typical of Leblanc/Noblet products.
This clarinet is most appropriate for: Anyone, especially intermediate to advanced players.
