Freshly Restored in our Repair Shop
Product Description

This is an excellent condition Buffet Crampon Paris Festival series Bb clarinet, serial number 438389. This clarinet has been well cared for and shows no cracks or previous repairs. The grenadilla wood body is in superb shape, and the instrument just received a fresh cleaning, repad, and adjustment from our repair shop by our top clarinet tech, Audrey Denny.


The silver plated keywork is all in fantastic condition, showing only very mild wear from normal use. I see no significant plating wear. It has 2 barrels, both Festival 66mm sized, the original and a newer replacement. Both are in great shape, as is the original bell. The Festival does feature an auxilary Eb key, as seen in the photos.


This clarinet arrived to us on older pads, so we completely restored it. Our top clarinet tech, Audrey Denny, replaced all pads and material, using only the best leather pads and synthetic material, and precisely adjusted the mechanisms and key heights for a fluid, exacting feel. We'll ship the instrument in perfect adjustment, and backed by our full one year mechanical warranty. This is a great option for players wanting a step-up from the standard R13.
