 Re: Buffet left hand nylon pin/dowel
Author: DougR

To cut to the chase here, I just tried to order some nylon pins thru Weiner Music (I was ordering reeds anyhow, so I thought what the hey).

The order lady passed me to the repair department, and someone named Mark answered the phone (this would be Mark Jacobi, I imagine, as Alseg mentioned above).

He said he does indeed MAKE his own pins out of metal. He also gave me Buffet's number and suggested I try there for the nylon replacements.

I called the number (866-434-9240) and was connected to the New York rep. (apparently this is a wholesale/retail dealer number) who told me they were currently out of stock, but he couldn't sell directly to me anyhow; I'd have to go through a franchised Buffet dealer. It wasn't until I hung up the phone that I thought, wait a minute...isn't Weiner a Buffet dealer?

I'm going to try Sam Ash and maybe Manny's a little later and see if they'll order me the pins.

If they decline, I'll call the number back and explain to the rep that the R-13 has this obvious design flaw, namely fragile "nylon connector pins for levers" (which is the official name, per the Buffet rep), and they need to A) furnish me the pins directly, since my retailers won't, and B) correct the flawed design with sturdy pins that won't break.

I imagine if all of us who are grousing about the levers did that, it might have some impact. (I think this is called 'guerrilla action'!)
