For Sale is for a Buffet “Prestige” Model Low Eb Bass Clarinet. This instrument was made recently around 2004. It is one of the most sought after brands of professional grade bass clarinets and is a beautiful instrument, both in sound quality and physical beauty. The wood is in excellent condition and the keywork really shines. It has a wonderful sound, is keyed down to low Eb and is a two piece instrument. Tuning is great on this instrument, and so is the response. The pads are in great shape as well.
In terms of playability, this is a very nice instrument. It has a lovely dark tone that sounds very nice. The case is original and has extra storage for music and tools. That said you will find this clarinet a great instrument to cherish for a long time. No mouthpiece is included with this instrument. Take a look at the photos to get an idea of the condition of the instrument below.
In terms of condition, the wood is solid and has aged well. I do not see any cracks or repaired cracks. There do not appear to be any dents on the neck or bell either. This instrument is a fabulous player and is well worth trying. Note the Prestige model has a resonance vent on the bell, which has an open tone hole but and no pad to cover it. No parts are missing, this is part of the the design of the instrument to give it better tone and intonation on certain notes.
