|Clarinets / Bass Clarinets
||This is a great condition Buffet S1 clarinet with silver keys. I am a professional woodwind musician and have used S1 clarinets all my professional life. This clarinet is from the golden era of Buffet production when the wood was seasoned for much longer and consequently less likely to split. I have kept it as a spare clarinet for many years and so it has had very little use. It has just been repadded with leather pads,the silver keys are immaculate and the logos are good. It has Matching serial numbers and there are no cracks or repairs to the wood. The case is in excellent conditionThe S1 produces a much bigger, more centred sound than the R13 and RC of today, and was in its day the symphony version of the RC. Many orchestral players switched from B&H 1010 clarinets to Buffet S1 for their tonal qualities. The great Americain clarinetist Mitchell Lurie ( Miichell Lurie Reeds) used one for many years. This particular one is a great blower with excellent tuning. The purchase of a Selmer Low C bass clarinet forces a reluctant sale. More, better quality photos and a video of me playing it are available on request.UK buyer only and Cash on collection or Paypal plus 3.4% charges . UK delivery £15.00.
