A very good condition Buffet C12 Bb clarinet. This instrument was originally manufactured as Buffet's entry level professional wooden model, and as such, can still be dated on their current website, unlike the lesser E13 and other student models. These days the Buffet website describes the instrument as suitable for the young advancing professsional, about to enter Music Conservatoire. This example has no damage or repairs to the wood. The Nickel Silver key work is in good condition with only very slight plating wear mainly to the RH rings, the plating is about 95%. We have just completely repadded in Pisoni Premium Deluxe fish skin pads [with the exception of the register key which is in cork] & the clarinet is sold with our "Clarinets Direct" 1 year warranty. The matching serial nos. are 254190 which dates to 1984, an excellent period of Buffet manufacture. The supplied m'piece is a Vandoren B45. NB The case pictured has been replaced with a more modern Patricola with carry strap.
