Buffet, DG, B Flat Clarinet
A good condition Buffet DG Prestige Bb clarinet. The DG, named after Buffet's chief designer of the 1990's, Daniel Gautier, was one of their finest designs ever: The tuning of the RH 12ths is unsurpassed by any model in their current line up. The bore is slightly smaller than the RC, and less undercut, and the instrument responds with a dark and powerful tone, uniform across the range. No surprise therefore that this model is played by many of the players in the UK's top orchestras. The Silver plate key work shows some wear, mainly to the ring fingers, it is about 90%. The instrument has finest Premium Deluxe white leather pads throughout in "as new" condition. The "DG" logo plate is unfortunately missing, but the distinctive design of the ring fingers, which are bevelled, leaves no doubt as to the model, as does the interior bore which is 14.60mm. The matching serial nos. are 393463 which dates to 1994. This instrument features an adjustable thumb rest, and unstained hand selected Grenadilla wood.
