An excellent condition Buffet DG Prestige Bb clarinet, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The current owner is a professional player from Holland. The DG, named after Buffet's chief designer of the 1990's, Daniel Gautier, was one of their finest designs ever: The tuning of the RH 12ths is unsurpassed by any model in their current line up. The bore is slightly smaller than the RC, and less undercut, and the instrument responds with a dark and powerful tone, uniform across the range. No surprise therefore that this model is played by many of the players in the UK's top orchestras. The Silver plate key work is excellent throughout. The instrument has just been completely re-padded in Pisoni Premium Deluxe White Leather. The matching serial nos. are 403412, which dates to 1995. This instrument features unstained hand selected Grenadilla wood. Please go to for more details. There are no cracks or damage to the wood, which is in pristine condition. There are 2 Buffet barrels, of 64.3mm & 66.5mm, but the former owner preferred to use a Zinner, 65.1mm, which is included. The original case is in excellent condition.
