Buffet, E11 C Clarinet
A very fine condition Buffet E11 C clarinet, in Grenadilla wood. The E11 C is Buffet's semi-professional model, and this example has matching serial nos. 002979 The Silver plated key work is in pristine condition. All pieces are matching and original. The wood has no cracks or repairs apart from one tiny chip to the lowest tenon, see the last photograph.The instrument has just had an overhaul in our Clarinets Direct workshop, in fish skin pads, and is sold with our 1 year warranty. Current Buffet E13's and E12's are giving a lot of trouble with shrinkage and wood movement, these problems commenced when Buffet moved the manufacture of these models from Germany back to the old Leblanc factory in France. Fortunately this instrument was made in Germany. The E11 C is an ideal purchase for the player who wants to use the same mouthpiece that they currently use on their Bb instrument, as the instrument tunes well with all standard French bore Bb m'pieces.
