Therefore superior to current Prestige specification, and allowing all D clarinet parts to be played. Clarinets Direct is fortunate in counting many leading professionals amongst our clientele. This instrument has come to us from a Spanish professional.
The serial nos. are 183297, which dates to 1977, an exceptionally fine period of manufacture. The instrument would have been specially ordered from Buffet Crampon. The wood has no cracks or repairs, it is in good condition throughout. The Silver plated keywork is in very good condition, with no discernable wear. The clarinet is well regulated and will play perfectly out of the box. It has white leather pads throughout, in very good condition. The instrument tunes exceptionally well, and also demontrates a much warmer and rounder tone than the current standard production model Buffet R13 Eb. It would suit a professional player. The supplied case is the original Buffet which has been re-lined, and the m'piece is also an original Buffet "B" in ebonite.
