An excellent condition Buffet RC Full Boehm, in Silver plate. This instrument features; fork Eb/Bb, LH Ab/Eb, articulated C#/G# & to low Eb.  Therefore superior to current Prestige specification. This clarinet could be purchased as an alternative to buying a pair, as A clarinet parts can be successfully negotiated with the extra mechanism and the ability to transpose. There is no damage to the wood, which is pristine.  The Silver plate key work is excellent throughout, with only one patch of wear to the inside of the E/B LH key, see photo 7. Indeed the excellent quality if this Silver plate contrasts sharply with that found on more modern Buffet clarinets. The instrument has recently been overhauled in leather pads and all are in excellent condition.  The matching serial nos. are F249429 which dates to 1984. At this time the RC was Buffet's most expensive clarinet, and this particular model was the most expensive key work option of the Bb range. Thus this clarinet was amongst the finest instruments Buffet then made; a special order clarinet. The barrel is an upgrade to a Chadash Buffet, which is of the right quality for this instrument and tunes it well with the supplied "as new" stock Buffet m'piece. The case is a modern "Clarinet" with many pouches and shoulder carry straps, it is in excellent condition.
