This is the bargain of the day – a good vintage Buffet Crampon Paris Bb clarinet, dating back to the early years of the company, with serial number 18192. This clarinet predates the R13 series, and despite its age it is in very good overall condition. It does need to be restored, but we are offering it at a super low price to give you room to have that work done.
Physically the instrument is very straight. The wood body of the upper joint shows no cracks or previous repairs that I can spot. The lower joint does have one very small crack which will need to be repairs. The keywork is all original and in good shape with nothing binding or frozen. The original barrel is in excellent shape, measuring 63mm, and the original bell has 2 cracks.
This clarinet is being sold “as is” and will need to be repadded before play. We are offering it at an absurdly low price to allow room for the cost of the work. Does ship in a hard case.
