(Includes 90 day money back guarantee)


The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

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.

Grenadilla Wood Body

Unlike many others in its price range, the Buffet E12F features an African Blackwood (otherwise known as Grenadilla) body. This has been treated with a clear varnish to prevent any damage to the instrument. The benefit from this wood body is the unprecedented tone, which is favoured by all professional musicians and has been the chosen professional wood choice for decades.

Keys and Mechanisms

The Buffet E12F clarinet has a simple design featuring the standard 17 keys and and 6 rings. All keywork is silver plated, making it long lasting and has been thought through sensibly to produce an ergonomic allowing ease of play for beginners and younger students. This combined with an adjustable thumb rest, makes the E12F very nice to play. All tone holes have been undercut and combined with leather pads, creating a great seal with better intonation and tonal character.

Recommended Student 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 E12F comes with a host of additional bits and pieces so that you can play the clarinet as soon as it arrives. Included in the package is a mouthpiece, ligature and reed enabling you to play the instrument straight out of the box. Also included with the clarinet is a back pack-style gig bag which allows for easy storage and carrying around to and from school, rehearsals and concerts.
