 Re: Buying a Vintage instrument: Pro's or just cons?

I typically buy used clarinets...my current horns are a 6 year old Yamaha csg custom, wonderful section horn, and an older Leblanc opus 2 (2003?) my jazz horn. Both were in like new condition.

I had a fully restored Selmer centered tone (full boheme) that was killer, which I regretfully sold.

Respective purchase prices were 1,800, 1,400 and 1,500.

I don’t personally get the buffet thing, though I played an S1 for many years.

Point is, there are excellent used pro level horns available for very attractive prices.
