A fine Buffet RC Prestige Bb clarinet
The instrument is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct, and this clarinet
was chosen new from many examples and used as a "doubling" instrument in London's West End.
Buffet Crampon is the undisputed finest volume maker of clarinets in the World today.
This clarinet is one of their
most desirable models, a RC Prestige.
The instrument is in very good condition. The wood is without mark or blemish:
NO damage or cracks whatsoever. The Silver plating is also in excellent order throughout.
This clarinet was
the first Buffet design to feature
a voicing groove in the bell to improve the lowest pitches. The intonation and response
are outstanding. The matching serial numbers are F445162.
The pads are mainly superpads, as fitted by John Coppen, and the instrument has gone down to our workshop for
a thorough check down, with pads replaced as necessary.
All pieces matching and original. The m'piece is an original Buffet,
unused, and still in the wrapper.
supplied single case is in an Orly in used condition.
