Buffet, E11, B Flat Clarinet
A very good condition Buffet E11 clarinet, in Grenadilla wood. This instrument is Buffet's semi-professional model, and this example has matching serial nos. 326462. In recent years the Buffet badged "France" Bb clarinet E11 model, which was made in the old Leblanc factory, gained an extremely poor reputation for build quality. So much so, that Buffet have deleted this model from their line up and, confusingly, renamed it the E12. Fortunately this E11 was made in Germany, before the move in manufacture to the French Leblanc factory and is, therefore, a significantly better made instrument. The Nickel Silver plated key work is in very good condition, with only one slight patch of wear to the throat G# key. The instrument has just had a complete overhaul in fish skin pads and is sold with our full 1 year warranty. The wood throughout is in excellent condition, with no cracks or damage. The supplied m'piece is an up-grade to a professional Vandoren B45 in good used condition. This instrument comes in an excellent BAM case with rucksack style back straps.
