The new E12F clarinet from Buffet-Crampon sets new standards in step-up/intermediate level instruments!

For advancing players ready to step up to the next level, the new E12F clarinet from Buffet-Crampon is one of the best options out there.  This instrument is made from 100% natural grenadilla wood that is carefully selected and stabilized, then treated with aspecial varnish to both protect against cracks and scratches, and insure optimal projection and sound quality.  Built with the reliability that has made Buffet an industry standard since their founding in 1825, the E12F is easy to play and has incredibly accurate intonation and response in all ranges.

The E12F's thumbrest is adjustable for player's comfort and has a ring for a neck strap if desired.  The forged coppered and silvered keys are supported by screwed pillars and blue steel springs for excellent feel and action, as well as durability, and the instrument's leather pads guarantee an airtight seal when playing.  It offers a sound quality and playing experience that very few instruments at this price point can equal.

The E12F also features an ergonomic and practical backpack-style case for ease of transport.

          Comments about Buffet E12F Step-Up Clarinet Outfit:

          At a fraction of the cost of their famous R-13 model, this is the perfect step up model for the advancing player. Features an all grenadilla body that produces a dramatic warm and sweet tone that you can't get from plastic student models. The leather pads insure the tone holes are covered completely with no leaks and to prevent squeaking. Buffet has been famous for their clarinets for almost 2 centuries and the 12F is a welcome addition to their line. I couldn't recommend this clarinet more.

          This is a real hands on product review from Ryan @ Sam Ash Philadelphia.

            Comments about Buffet E12F Step-Up Clarinet Outfit:

            Buffet never, I mean never, dissapoints.

            The E12F came out a couple of years ago and has been a staple intermediate/ semi-profession clarinet. Made in France and the keys are made in Germany, made with 100% grenadilla wood, sealed for consistency and beauty. The keys are finished well and don't tarnish. The tone is great accross the full spectrum, it's repsonsive, edgy if needed or warm depending on your emboucher. If you've outgrown your current clarinet, or you just feel that it can't keep up, it may be time to trade your old one in. I would strongly suggest Buffet, escpecially the E11 or E12 as your first consideration as an upgrade from your student model.

            Hands on reviewer, Sam Ash #41
