This auction is for a Pre-R13 Professional Wood Clarinet made by Buffet Crampon In a brand new case. This clarinet was produced in the first half of the 20th century by one of the best clarinet companies around and is still producing clarinets today. At that time, buffet only made professional instruments, and this one plays very very well. These early models are famous for their dark tone that simply isn’t available in modern clarinets! Buffet is known for making some of the best clarinets available, and this instrument is no different. It begs to be played and is a piece of living history. This instrument has been completely re-padded and overhauled. The wood shows some wear from age, but the clarinet still sings. See the last photo for more details. Also included is a nice hard case in good condition. No mouthpiece is included, I recommend you obtain a high quality mouthpiece that matches your playing style if you decide to purchase this clarinet.
