G. Leblanc Paris Alto Saxophone ( Rare Vintage 50’s )


This is an Alto Saxophone that was only made from 1950-1953 in Paris, France. Its “1/2 brother” is the “Selmer Mark 6”. This horn has amazing tone and craftsmanship. It has its original lacquer finish and neck. The horn recently had its pads replaced and is in excellent playing condition. There are no significant dents or dings on the horn, however the previous owner’s name is lightly engraved on the back (as pictured).

This horn was made under the supervision of Leon Leblanc. He was the only instrument-maker businessman who was also a gifted clarinetist and holder of the coveted first prize of the Paris Conservatoire of Music. He combined his talents and sensitivities that he developed as a musician with his skills as an instrument maker. Leon Leblanc paid special attention to the detail of the Selmer Paris Mark VI alto saxophone and was known to consult with the instrument makers of the “Selmer Paris” manufacturing facility. Leon Leblanc dedicated his research to finding the delicate balance of hand craftsmanship and machine tooling that produces instruments of unsurpassed quality. Leon’s father “George Leblanc” was also a master French instrument maker and taught Leon along with the late master acoustician “Charles Houvenaghel”.

This very rare alto saxophone was made in Paris at the peak of Leon Leblanc’s career and has that warmth and sound quality sought after by professional players. Don’t let this vintage horn slip thru your fingers because it is an alto players dream. This horn is a true collectors piece. Included are: sax, neck, mouthpiece, ligature, mouthpiece cover and neckstrap with a thick padded soft case. 90000-311532
