6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' 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 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 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.

The RC Clarinet

This clarinet was developed in 1975 by Robert Carree, whose initials are carried through the range of clarinets. The main characteristic of this instrument is its focused and pure tone, created through the carefully selected grenadilla wood body. This gives the performer freedom of expression and flexibility.

Grenadilla Wood Body

Unlike other models, the RC features an unstained grenadilla wood body. The benefit from this wood body is the unprecedented tone, which is favoured by all professional musicians and has been the ultimate choice of tonewood for decades.

Keys & Mechanisms

The Buffet RC clarinet has a simple design featuring 18 keys and 6 rings. All keywork is copper and silver, which is long lasting and ergonomic, allowing ease of play for busy professionals. This combined with an adjustable thumb rest, makes the RC 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 (Germany), this clarinet will ensure many years of hassle-free playing through its ease to service and maintain.

The Full Package

To ensure players can start using their new instrument straight away, Buffet has added a hard case, ligature and reed to this package.

*Please note - if you don't already have one you'll need to purchase a mouthpiece separately for use with this clarinet. Choose from our clarinet mouthpiece selection.
