This model was constructed using traditional methods combining technology and experience. All Buffet products are made in either their France or Germany workshop with the E11 manufactured in Germany – specifically Markneukirchen. This free blowing clarinet is hand finished by one of Buffet's highly skilled craftsmen, to a professional standard.
Unlike other models, the E11 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.
The Buffet E11 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 students. This, combined with a fixed thumb rest, makes the E11 very pleasing to play. All tone holes have been undercut and combined with bladder pads, creating a great seal with better intonation and tonal character.
The Buffet Clarinet range comes with a wealth of knowledge and experience from some of the finest craftspeople in the world. Made in Markneukirchen, Germany, this clarinet will ensure many years of hassle free playing through its ease to service and maintain.
