      Disadvantages

      Price instrument but quality

      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 money I was looking to spend. This clarinet definitely lives up to expectations and more.

      **A little history**
      The clarinet was developed by Robert Carrée (a French musician) these designs started in 1825.

      My clarinet is Key Bb and produces a very pleasant, pure mellow sound.
      Has 17 keys and 6 rings.
      The keys are padded for comfort while playing allowing a smoother key/note change.

      This clarinet claims the following -
      Hand burnished bore : Improve intonation and centers tone
      Egg-shaped inside bell shape : Greater sound emission
      Conical lower joint and bell : Softer tone color and easier response
      Power forged silver keywork, preplated in copper and finished in silver plate : High quality long lasting finish
      Silver plated adjustable thumb rest : Adjustable for optimum comfort
      Undercut tone holes : Improves tone and ease of response.

      **My opinion
      I would say anyone looking to purchase a clarinet to look at this model/design as I believe it is ideal for beginners and intermediates a like.
      I think 9 years ago I had a good price (but this was second hand) You can get second hand ones in the region of £200-£500 and a new one would set you back between £1800 - 2000.

      For me this product has only lost marks on the price.
