Semi-professional Clarinet

E12F $2,018

*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.

Student Clarinets

Prodige $649

*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.  

B12 $425 (limited number- discontinued!)

The student model B12 clarinet is made from a lightweight & durable ABS resin that is brushed with a satin finish. The B12 also has metal tenon rings and nickel-plated keywork.

*We also hand select our student model instruments, and adjust them so they are in top shape!
