The last clarinet you'll ever need...

AdvantagesBright tone, looks nice, good case

DisadvantagesDoesn't come cheap...

"...was 'languishing' on my old Buffet E11 would probably be an understatement, and a year or so ago I decided it was time to move up to a professional model clarinet.

Blown Away

AdvantagesPure sound, gentle key changes


"I have owned my Buffet Crampon clarinet for 7 years now and has served me very well. I started playing at school and have had the same clarinet all the time. Although I don't really play anymore I can not bring myself to sell it. I paid £800.00 for my second hand clarinet from the local music store, it came in a lockable hard box with a red velveteen insert. The recommendation of the guy in the shop was that Buffet Crampon was the best for the ..." Read review
