A very good condition Buffet C12 Bb clarinet, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. This instrument was originally manufactured as Buffet's entry level professional wooden model, and though there has been some confusion from Buffet, as marketing men at Buffet felt that this model represented too good value for money, it sits well above the E13 in terms of quality. These days the Buffet website describes the instrument as suitable for the young advancing professsional, about to enter Music Conservatoire.
The Silver plated key work is in superb condition with no plating wear. The instrument has good condition Pisoni Premium Deluxe fish skin pads throughout. There are no cracks or damage to the wood, which is excellent throughout, all pieces including barrel and bell, are matching and stamped. The matching serial nos. are 458218 which dates to 2000. The supplied m'piece is a stock Buffet in "as new" condition. The instrument has been very well looked after, and the original brown leather case is also in good condition.
