However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Buffet Crampon

Since 1825 Buffet has developed around the recognition of its instrument manufacture. The guarantee of such quality is the charm to a player's heart and as all products are made in either France or Germany workshops this quality is continuously reliable. All workers start as apprentices to learn everything they need to from highly skilled craftsmen, however the most important skills are dedication, passion and patience. Since birth almost every Buffet instrument has been continuously tested and developed. Listening to its players needs, Buffet has adapted the instruments to cope with the period in time.

Buffet Tosca

Designed by Michel Arrignon, the Buffet Tosca is an example of the skills the highly experienced craftsmen acquire. Tosca's favoured characteristics include rich harmonies, flexibility and ease of response. The poly-cylindrical bore shape became a huge hit in the USA before becoming a favourite among many professional clarinetists and experienced amateur musicians. Favored for its focused and rich tone combined with its ability to play throughout all registers evenly, the bore is extremely versatile and can be played in a variety of musical styles - from orchestras to military bands to jazz. The Buffet Tosca uses grenadilla wood found from African blackwood. This is then treated and stained to produce a body with fantastic tone and projection, but also durability.

Grenadilla Wood Body

Unlike other models, the Tosca features an African Blackwood (otherwise known as Grenadilla) body. The benefit from this wood body is the unprecedented tone, which is favoured by all professional musicians and has been the professional choice of wood for decades.

Keys and Mechanisms

The Buffet Tosca clarinet has a simple design featuring 19 keys and 6 rings. All keywork is silver or gold plated, which is long lasting and ergonomic - allowing ease of play for busy professionals. This combined with an adjustable thumb rest, makes the Tosca very nice to play. All tone holes have been undercut and combined with leather and natural cork pads, creating a great seal with better intonation and tonal character.

Recommended Professional Clarinet

The Buffet Clarinet range comes with a wealth of knowledge and experience from some of the finest craftsmen in the world. Made in Markneukirchen in Germany, this clarinet will ensure many years of hassle free playing through its ease to service and maintain.

Everything You Need

The Buffet Crampon Tosca Bb Clarinet comes with a range of accessories, enabling players to get started as soon as the package arrives. Included is a ligature and reed, as well as a case, which allows for easy storage and travel to and from school, rehearsals and concerts.
