For Sale is for a Buffet “Professional” Model Low Eb Bass Clarinet. This instrument was made in 1960 alongside the R13 clarinets of the time. It is one of the professional grade bass clarinets that Buffet was manufacturing during that period. It has a wonderful sound and 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 showing age, but still have life in them.
In terms of playability, this is a very nice instrument. It has a lovely dark tone that sounds very nice. The case is aftermarket 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.
