 Buffet E11 date of manufacture
Author: eebrudad

I've come across a Buffet E11 with serial number 688543. I've not yet found a serial number chart that indicates year of manufacture for this clarinet. Does anyone have a chart that would help me identify year of manufacture for this clarinet?

It would be from 3 to 6 years old tops. That's just a guess from the E-11 instruments that some of my students have and their date of purchase.

I have seen all sorts of websites for R13 serial numbers, and other Buffet professional instruments, but never the E series. (and the Buffet website only does Buffets made in France). Are there any websites that organize the made in Germany instruments?

i'm guessing the reason why buffet does this is that they want to justify the price of their instruments by providing the serial numbers only for their pro line instruments. kinda like joining the exclusive club members only, which is IMO not the greatest way to present a company.

Our inventions are wont to be pretty toys, which distract our attention from serious things. they are but improved means to an unimproved end, an end which was already but too easy to arrive as railroads lead to Boston to New York
