An excellent condition Buffet RC Full Boehm, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. This instrumnet features; fork Eb/Bb, LH Ab/Eb, articulated C#/G# & to low Eb.  Therefore superior to current Prestige specification. Buffet made this clarinet as an alternative to buying a pair, as A clarinet parts could 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 tiny patch of wear to the register key, see photo 11. The instrument has recently been overhauled in Pisoni Premium Deluxe Fish Skin pads and all are in excellent condition.  The matching serial nos. are F279670 which dates to 1986. This was just about the time of the introduction of the Prestige range. Thus this clarinet was amongst the finest instruments Buffet then made; a special order clarinet. The barrel is a Prestige Bb 65.0mm, which is of the right quality for this instrument and tunes it well with the supplied "as new" stock Buffet m'piece. The original case is well used, with stains and scuffs to the interior but still fully functional.
