Buffet Festival Bb Clarinet #596xxx
Over half off the price of a new Festival clarinet, but already set up and ready to perform! Festival clarinets are one of my favorite models by Buffet, with excellent wood quality and the improved register tube placement.
This is a trade-in from a professional orchestral clarinetist that has since purchased new instruments. We received this Festival Bb and A set (A since sold) in great condition with fairly light use. Silver plating is 99% in tact. Some pads were needed and mechanism regulated, with an end result of cork pads on the top (with some refaced or replaced) and new Valentino tan synthetic pads on the bottom joint.
Fantastic wood quality, sweet sound, with incredible response and evenness throughout. Great intonation (with 2 barrels, 65mm and 66mm included).
Priced to sell since it only needed minimal work!
