A near mint condition Buffet E11 clarinet, in Grenadilla wood, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The only reason the instrumnet is not described as mint, is that the tenon corks are not all brand new, in all other repects this instrument is " as new". In fact, because new tan leather pads have been fitted throughout, it is actually supplied in better specification than new. The Silver plating is pristine, as is the wood condition. All pieces are matching and original, the m'piece is brand new and unplayed. This instrument is Buffet's semi-professional model, and this example has matching serial nos. 835321. In recent years the Buffet badged "France" Bb clarinet E11 model, which was made in the old Leblanc factory, gained an extremely poor reputation for build quality. So much so, that Buffet have deleted this model from their line up and, confusingly, renamed it the E12. Fortunately this E11 was made in Germany, before the move to manufacture in the French Leblanc factory and is, therefore, a significantly better made instrument.
