Buffet Festival B-Flat 488642
This Buffet Festival B-flat clarinet from the early 2000’s is set up and ready to play at the highest level. It’s in fantastic condition, and with our Hand-Selected RCW Delrin Barrel, it sings!
We liked the barrel so much that we're including it for FREE with the instrument. We spent roughly 5-6 hours going over everything on the instrument: Key fitting, action, synchronization, seal, bumpers, just to name a few, and it's ready for a new home! This clarinet is perfect for someone looking to upgrade and who wants a premium clarinet.
Festivals have a few nice upgrades over an R13: The register tube is in a different position, which helps with tuning, it has a left-hand alternate E-flat key already installed, the wood is premium and unstained, and in addition to our RCW barrel, it comes with a 66 and a 65 barrel from Buffet. Plus, the case is upgraded from the standard R13!
Don't miss this deal on a practically un-played and wonderful instrument. Contact us today to visit one of our two locations, or try it in your own performance space with our at-home trial!
Every clarinet is checked to make sure the following things are perfect:
- Pressure/Suction - No leaking pads
- Key Movement - No binding or drag
- Spring Tension - Proper tension and balance
- Ring Heights - Checked for proper evenness and height
- Pad Height Opening - Checked for proper venting (no stuffiness)
- Key Spatula Locations - Key positions checked for ergonomics
We are clarinetists with many years of performing and clarinet repair experience, so we know exactly how a great instrument should play and feel. This results in a better adjusted, easier to play, and ultimately a better sounding clarinet.
