Yes, the timbers and level of craftmanship spend on a top notch clarinet =
back then is today only found with two or three German makers, whose =
horns however set you back 10000 and more.
BTW, I think if your daughter trusts her teacher (otherwise I'd look for =
another one anyway) it is a very good thing to get an instrument passed =
on from him. A very usuall thing over here (old Europe), and much safer =
than bidding on ebay for something you have never seen nor heard nor =
anybody recommended to you...
Moreover, I found the new Buffets, even the high ends, kind of dead....
Best wishes,

Subject: [kl] Buffet

My daughter is in high school and is an accomplished clarinetist. She has
been using the Buffet E11 for a few years and I have been considering
upgrading her instrument. She has been offered an old Buffet that her
teacher has been using and supposedly is in excellent condition and is
supposed to be much better than professional instruments of today, in terms
of wood used, etc. It's serial number is in the 37000 range and I have been
told it is pre-WWII. She has played it and loves it. I'm interested in
opinions-is she doing well to buy this instrument (for about $1000) or
should she buy a new Buffet professional grade instrument for more money?
Thanks in advance.
