BUFFET CRAMPON PROFESSIONAL BASS CLARINET, RIPPER COLLECTION, 2495

This is a superb condition Buffet Bass Clarinet in Grenadilla wood, to low Eb, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. This Bass has been professionally owned and played in London from new by a leading London professional, and it is an outstanding example of a low Eb Bass. It has identical specification to the current Buffet Prestige model; double overblowing vent, articulated C#/G#, and LH alternative Ab/Eb.
All German Silver key work is in excellent condition. There are no cracks or damage to the wood, which is pristine. The bell and crook are both in excellent condition with no dents, just light surface scratches. The instrument is padded throughout in white and tan leather pads of the finest quality, all are in excellent condition. This Bass has just had a thorough check over in our workshop. The matching serial nos. are 20145 which dates to 1967. At that period, "Dallas" were the sole London agents for Buffet, and their stamp is also on the instrument. The original case shows some wear: The lining is worn, but still protects the instrument well, and the latches are secure. The m'piece is a professional ebonite model in good condition. A Yamaha floor peg attachment has been fitted to the bell, but the instrument has double sling hooks, so, if required, it could be played with a sling.
