MATCHED PAIR OF YAMAHA SE VINTAGE CUSTOM CLARINETS, £1945
A good condition pair of Yamaha SE-VINTAGE CUSTOM clarinets, which are a commission sale for Clarinets
Their former owner is a professional sax and clarinet player, who liked this pair
because of their excellent intonation and even scale.
It is received wisdom within the music industry that when Yamaha launch a new product,
they will have made every conceivable effort to outdo their competitors,
at a considerabily cheaper price to the customer.
So it was in the 2000's, when Yamaha with the collaboration of Claude Faucomprez,
began manufacture of the Custom CS-V and SE-V range.
The wood was unstained matched Grenadilla,
the silver plate, and key work, was of considerably better quality than Buffet.
Many players found the ease with which these instruments responded completely won them over.
The specification matched the top Buffet Prestige models, with these instruments
even having voicing
grooves in the bell, however the price
was on a par with standard Buffet professional models
