 Buffets and cutting corners
Author: jonathan.wallaceadams

Hello all,

Today, My clarinet fell off of its stand and the piece of p l a s t i c connecting the left B lever to the tone hole-closure-mechanism SNAPPED at the lever rendering it seemingly unusable. I'm fine because I found another lever that feels great and fits on the horn. However, I can't shake the feeling that these plastic connections are cheap and could've been created better (considering that it's a $4500 clarinet.) Has anybody else had this happen to them? Can this be fixed? Why does Buffet use these cheap bits of plastic?

Thanks

Just an aspiring student.
