An excellent condition Buffet E11 clarinet, in Grenadilla wood. The instrument has just had a complete re-pad in Pisoni deluxe fish skin pads by newly qualified repairman Dave Kershook [who has just joined NAMIR] , and is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. This instrument is Buffet's semi-professional model, and this example has matching serial nos. 753059. 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 before the move in manufacture to the French Leblanc factory, and is, therefore a significantly better made instrument. The Silver plated key work is in pristine condition, with no wear. The wood throughout is in excellent condition, with no cracks or repairs. This instrument comes in a good condition case, with an "as new" mouthpiece.
