Our R13 clarinets are hand selected at the Buffet US headquarters. They are completely upgraded with premium pads, and have detailed keywork by Alcides Rodriguez. (Our upgraded pads are more durable, and make the clarinet more resonant and responsive). Alcides explains his R13 upgrade and materials in this video.
Our premium model Buffet clarinets are hand selected directly at the factory in France and are also adjusted personally by Alcides.

*Buffet’s new premium student clarinet, the Prodige, showcases an outstanding tone, ergonomic keywork and a highly reliable body construction. We are excited about this new model, because although it is a plastic student clarinet, the bore is moulded in France and provides a professional feel and sound. The Prodige body is made of ABS polymer resin (hard plastic) with nickel keys and white leather pads.
E12F Bb $1,922
*For those advancing students who are ready for an upgraded wooden instrument but are on a budget, we highly recommend the semi-professional E12F. It is made of grenadilla wood and has silver keys, white leather pads, and a mouthpiece specially designed by Dave McClune.
