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:

      This is an awesome clarinet and is probably one of the best that I ever played! Buffett has had a long history of making great instruments and this one is no exception to the legacy. It is made completely of grenadilla wood and will last for a long time.

          This clarinet is great for many uses. Made in France, pro players get great intonation with its 100% Italian leather pads and 100% grenadilla wood.

          I am a sales associate at Sam Ash Music, Cerritos Ca and I recommend this clarinet to all pro players.

              Comments about Buffet E12F Step-Up Clarinet Outfit:

              Everybody knows Buffet for quality. The E12F does not disappoint. For anyone looking for a pro-level sound for an amazing price, this is for you. Grenadilla always has the best tone to my ear. Smooth and rich. The key action is very fast and responsive and the pads seal tightly. The intonation is spot on. Comes with a cool case. Great deal for anyone looking to advance themselves to the next caliber of player.

                    Made from the choicest, all-natural grenadilla wood this clarinet sings to stars and back. Not only does it play like a queen, this instrument is stunning to gaze upon. Adjustable thumb rest helps let every player feel comfortable regardless of their approach. Backpack style case is included making transport safe and easy. Leather pads, coppered and silvered keys... Everything about this clarinet is top of the line. A phenomenal instrument for most skill levels.

                      All professional Clarinets are made from 100% wood and this one is no exception. Buffet is well known for its attention to detail and the quality of the instruments it builds. The small details in this Clarinet make it a dream to play like the adjustable thumb rest and the backpack style case.

                        Buffet has always been the go-to brand for clarinets. The E12F is great for students who are ready to upgrade from maybe a resin or plastic clarinet. The 100% granadilla wood body definitely gives off a smooth, warm tone. The keys and action feel great. This clarinet also comes with a mouthpiece and a backpack style case that parents and students absolutely love.

                          This is a great clarinet for the arsonal of a serious player. Not quite as pricy as the R13, but with tons of high end features that make this a great choice for the high school or college student that's upgrading from a student level instrument.

                              Beautifully crafted, it sounds and looks like a much more expensive instrument. Built for players who are ready to step up to an advanced level clarinet, the E12F is made from natural genadilla wood and treated to resist scratches and cracks. It's built to last for a long, long time and sound quality is incredible. Comes with case and mouthpiece. This is a real hands on review by Sean@ Sam Ash Ontario.
