Looking for a new home is this phenomenal LeBlanc System 100 alto. This horn seems to have been played very little, with original lacquer on thumb rest and strap hook, and original blue tweed case in excellent condition. The horn is in lovely cosmetic condition, with 98% lacquer intact and bell engraving is gorgeous.
Expected scratches in high wear areas, and some slight corrosion around bell/bow ring and a few solder joints. Bell rim and interior has lacquer scratching, likely having been used for storage of a neck strap.Minimal light corrosion on nickel plated key surfaces and resonators. Neck is in very nice shape, with no signs of trauma or past dentwork. Some small dings throughout the horn, mostly on bottom bow and bell.
Small dent on side of low C# tone hole. Previous owner had it worked on some years ago, with (6) of the original pads being replaced with custom pads manufactured to original LeBlanc pad dimensions by Music Medic.No modifications, this horn retains the original LeBlanc threaded resonator system with no missing components. Other than those mentioned, the rest of the pads are original and are in varying condition.
This horn is currently not in playing condition , and needs an adjustment and a few pads replaced at minimum, but should be repadded for optimal performance. Happy to answer any inquiries.
