HELP, I Want One!

Here's a horn for serious collectors looking to round out the collection: this is a very lightly used Buffet Crampon Paris basset horn in the key of F, serial number H38985. This is a Buffet Prestige model, made for discerning professional musicians looking for the very best. It is in pristine like-new physical condition and is available for a price well below for what it sells for when new. This is a demo horn, used a handful of times, but never seriously played very hard.


Championed by Mozart, the basset horn is a fantastic addition to the clarinet family. It is keyed in F, and made from grenadilla wood with silver plated keywork and bell/necks. This modern design is comfortable to play and features all the bells and whistles you'd expect from Buffet Paris. The instrument will get a throughout checkup in our repair shop before shipping, where we'll make sure all pads are sealing properly and all material is up to our standards. We'll replace anything that doesn't meet our specs.


If you find yourself in an ensemble playing a lot of music calling for the basset horn, or if you've just been on the hunt for one at a more reasonable price, you can't go wrong with this one. It ships in its original Buffet case with a new Vandoren Paris Black Diamond alto clarinet mouthpiece.
