Buffet RC Prestige A Clarinet
This very fine, rare, and unique, Buffet customised Buffet RC A Prestige clarinet is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. We are fortunate to count many of the leading clarinet players in the world amongst our clientele, one such is Pedro Franco of the the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra, who commissioned the work on this clarinet from Buffet, the current cost of which is 1,400 Euros. This RC Prestige A is a big improvement on the standard Buffet production model.
The result of all of the rear RH thumb touchpiece is to raise the pitch of low F & E which delivers an improved scale and intonation on a Buffet RC A clarinet. Please note as part of this work, Buffet also tenon cap the lowest joint to prevent the likelihood of cracking. The condition of this instrument is excellent. There are no cracks or damage to the wood. The Silver plating is very fine without wear or scratches. The clarinet has used white leather pads throughout, with several on the upper joint in cork, all are sealing well and will be good for some time to come. The supplied Buffet double case is also in good condition, and comes with the keys. In summation: This is an outstanding A, with impeccable response and intonation. Pedro Franco has had further after market tuning done, and even the optimum position for the barrel is marked on the barrel tenon ring! It would suit the most discerning player.
