Looking for Leblanc professional harmony clarinets (C/D/Eb/Ab)

I'm afraid your messages will be few and far between. I occasionally see a Leblanc A horn, but in some thirty years of looking on and off, I've never seen an Ab for sale outside of a specialty shop, and the others are about as common.

I did play a Leblanc C horn while I was the "utility man" (bass clarinet, third clarinet, and anything else) with the Springfield (MO) Symphonic Orchestra back in 1969 - 1970, but I have forgotten who owned it (then-Drury College, perhaps - they had a strange instrument storage room), and in any event I doubt that they would be looking to sell.

Come to think of it, if you monitor eBay at all, you will learn that Leblanc horns of the professional grade are few and far between. Don't know what that is, unless the Buffet Mafia is behind it...
Yes, they are not frequent on the market but they exist and some only sit idle.

Not sure what's wrong with me, but there is something in the tone that keeps me going back to Leblanc clarinets.
