|Clarinets / Bass Clarinets
||The Buffet Prodige Bb clarinet replaced the popular Buffet B12. It is a highly regarded student clarinet with the most beautiful sound. We bought this clarinet because Buffet have 100+ years of clarinet making expertise and the B12 was a legendary model, recommended by teachers worldwide. Reviews say that the step forward to the new Prodige has cemented Buffet as one of, if not the, best option to start clarinet with. This one is as good as new. My daughter played it for just over a year. We bought it new from Howarth of London in 2016. It comes with a smart backpack case and cleaning felt. We have included some new reeds, neck strap and clarinet books as well.This is the maker's description: Buffet Crampon has revolutionised the student clarinet! Now, beginners on a budget can start out with a professional sound. Essential qualities of the Prodige clarinet are tone, ergonomics and reliability. For the first time in this range, the required operations for creating perfect acoustics, especially the moulding and drilling of the bore, are performed entirely in France and Germany to ensure a consistent result. Prodige's new bore, inspired by the renowned E13 model, allows an unprecedented ease of play and projection of sound. The intervals between notes are pitch-perfect and balanced. Its bell has also been entirely reworked in order to optimise projection. Our innovation: a textured bore. It is now possible for a young musician to learn to play on a professional-sounding clarinet at a reasonable price.
