A very good condition Yamaha 450 clarinet, which was recently taken in part exchange by Clarinets Direct. The instrument has been down to our workshop for an overhaul, and is sold with our full 1 year warranty. The Silver plated keywork is in fine condition with no wear. The wood throughout is in excellent condition. The Yamaha 450 is the top selling rival to the Buffet E11. It has a couple of major advantages over its Buffet rival: 1. The wood tends to give less trouble than the E11, which indeed, has developed such a poor reputation in this regard, that the Buffet E11 "France" is now a deleted model in the Buffet range, and has been re-badged E12. Yamaha quality control and build quality are exemplary, and these instruments are easy to live with and perfect for the advancing student. 2. The instrument has a "voicing" groove in the bell, in common with the more expensive models in the Yamaha range and also the Buffet Prestige RC. The serial nos. are 108375. The supplied m'piece is an upgrade to a Buffet "C" in ebonite. The original case is in very good condition.
