Clarinets Direct. These one owner instruments
have been extremely well cared for and maintained. Their current owner has just purchased a new
pair of Peter Eaton clarinets.
The pair was bought new some 10 years ago, and have just been completely re-padded in tan leather,
a copy of the repair invoice is
to follow and will be included in the sale.
The Bb has matching serial nos. 581620. All pieces are matching and original and stamped "Buffet".
The Silver plating
overall is in excellent condition, with no wear.
This Bb is in pristine condition, with no damage or repairs to the Grenadilla wood.
The pads are all tan leather apart from the speaker key and lower trill keys which are in cork.
The A S/N
584628 is also in excellent condition,
with only slight wear to the logo stamps to distinguish it
from a new instrument.
The supplied original Buffet black leather case is in excellent condition externally, and the interior lining
shows little wear. There is also an Altieri case cover supplied, with carry pouches and shoulder straps.
The m'piece is the original Buffet still wrapped.
