Buffet, E11, E Flat Clarinet
This is a near mint condition Buffet E11 Eb clarinet, in Grenadilla wood, the only reason it cannot be described as "mint" is that the pads show very slight use. This clarinet was bought new 2 years ago by an adult, who has now to sell it in order to fund the purchase of a pair of clarinets. This instrument is Buffet's semi-professional model, and this example has matching serial nos. 103897. The Silver plated key work is in pristine condition. The wood is without any mark or blemish. The supplied m'piece is an up-grade to a Vandoren M30 in excellent condition. The original, unmarked, case comes with the still wrapped keys. Current French made Buffet E13's, E12's and E11F's are giving a lot of trouble with shrinkage and wood movement, this instrument was made under licence for Buffet in Germany by Schreiber, and is a much better crafted clarinet.
