Hi everyone,
I am considering getting my 1st clarinet, having played several other instruments i was wanting to start on a wooden one so that it will last me a good long time! However i have just found this Leblanc "Bliss" model:
and was wondering if anyone knows/heard/tried it, i have a piccolo, pearl PFP-105 E (on the good advice i got from here!), which is also composite, having loved that i wonder whether this would be a good clarinet to go for. Also i like the quirky look!
Many thanks,

The Leblanc Bliss is such a beautiful sounding instrument and it is beautiful to play too, I am soon to get one and tried it in the shop and didn't want to put it down

Hope that helps

I tried a leblanc Bliss at my local music store. I liked it alot. It plays wonderfully, But I had a friend who bought it and after 4months the black nickel plating started to wear off the keys which turned me off a little bit.

which bliss do you want? i own an lb310 (wood barrel, composite body) which cost $739. if want to keep it cheap, then get the lb320 which is all composite and cost somewhere in the 600s. if you want the lb210 which is all wood but cost somehere in the 1000s. judging from he reviews i read, the lb210 is the best, but the priciest. anyways i really like the how this thing plays, it is amazing! and the black nickel you can opt for looks sooo cool. but it starts to wear off after a while.

Well, if you want to start on a good clarinet, silver plating is much better actually. LeBlanc Bliss is a nice clarinet but after a few years most players switch to a silver plated one that has more to offer.

The black nickel plating on my Bliss 210 developed "chrome spots" very quickly, I have yet to experience any issues with the pads. I've only had this one for several months, so far so good, wonderful tone, I love the mouthpiece that comes with it, and it's a sure handsome horn.
Well designed and great playing instrument for it's price.
It's almost too easy to produce a great rich tone with it, it literally plays itself in that department.
