This is a very good condition Buffet RC Prestige Bass Clarinet in Grenadilla wood, to low C, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. The instrument has had only one professional owner, and the instrument was bought in 2006 and used for approximately 8 years as part of a busy freelance career. As she no longer plays the Bass it is now offered to the market.
All Silver plated key work is in excellent condition. There are no cracks or damage to the wood which is pristine. The crook is in perfect condition, and the bell has a few light scratches and a couple of tint "pin head" dings, see photo 9. This type of Buffet Bass has a double overblowing vent, and features alternative fingerings for low D. This Bass has finest Pisoni White Leather pads throughout, in good to excellent condition. The Bass has been down to Mike Huntriss, ex-Bass Clarinet with the BSO, for a partial repad and regulation, and, in addition the key work has been oiled. The playing condition is superb. There is a floor peg to the bell, and the matching serial nos. are 27852. The instrument comes in the original case, which is in good used condition, and comes with the key.
