 Buffet DG
Author: vollkommen 
Date:   2006-08-15 17:26

I searched for this topic and found some postings from several years ago, but no one really provided much information on this clarinet, the Buffet DG. From what I've learned so far, the DG stands for Daniel Gautier, who supposedly worked with Buffet in developing the clarinet. The bore is smaller than the traditional R13, and the keywork on the clarinet feels slightly different than that on an R13 (w/Aux Eb). When I bought mine a few years ago, I chose it over the Festivals I tried because it had more resonance and better tone in the chalumeau register and the throat tones were better.


Does anybody know any more about this instrument? I've never been able to find any references to it that weren't obscure or just statements that the author didn't know much about it. I've never seen or heard one in person other than the one I ended up buying. I've heard that they weren't very popular in the United States, which might explain it. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
