 C-12 and big hands
Author: Gardini 
Date:   2007-09-11 17:45

I am looking into buying a used Buffet C-12 clarinet. I live in Alaska and won't be able to try it out and was hoping for some help from the Board. I have searched the archives and noticed that the E-11 and C-12 have different key configurations from the R-13 - something about no wood cut out and moving the lower keys up 1/8" I also saw that E-11's are built for small hands. Does anyone know if the C-12 would be a bad choice for someone with big hands and short fingers? The clarinet is in great shape and is very fairly priced. Anyone have any advice on mid-level clarinets with roomy keywork spacing? Thanks
