This is a superb condition Buffet Bass Clarinet in Grenadilla wood, to low Eb. This Bass has been professionally owned and played in the Paris Conservatoire Orchestra and is an outstanding example of a low Eb Bass. It has identical specification to the current Buffet Prestige model, double overblowing vent, and LH alternative Ab/Eb.
All Nickel 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 leather pads of the finest quality, all are in very good condition. This Bass has just had a thorough check over in our workshop. The matching serial nos. are 19620 which dates to 1966. The original case is very compact. The lining is worn, but still protects the instrument well, the handle has a tape repair, and the latches are secure. The m'piece is a professional Buffet special edition, " Jacques Millon", in pristine condition. There is no floor peg, but a sling is provided. We can fit a new floor peg, if desired, at additional cost.
