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 E12F

Buffet's research, development and production teams all worked together to produce a high quality student clarinet, for an affordable price. It was important to keep the professional qualities of the model, so Buffet worked hard to come up with a solution which could make this possible. The assembly of this model takes place in Buffet's German workshop in Markneukirchen. The key characteristics of the E12F are its reliability, accurate tuning and easy playability.

Grenadilla Wood Body

Unlike other models, the E12F features an African Blackwood (otherwise known as Grenadilla) body. This has been treated with a clear varnish to prevent 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 choice of wood for decades.

Keys and Mechanisms

The Buffet E12F clarinet has a simple design featuring the standard 17 keys and 6 rings. All keywork is silver plated, which is long lasting and 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.


This Buffet E12F Student Clarinet Pack comes with a range of accessories, ideal for a student or beginner looking to start playing the instrument. As standard the clarinet comes with an urban play mouthpiece, ligature, reed and case.
