 Cases for Instruments with Left Hand Ab/Eb
Author: Exiawolf

Greetings!

I recently picked up a Buffet Tradition clarinet (it ended up being perfect for me!) and the case it came in is rather small. I have a standard Buffet R13 case as well as a Protec Double Clarinet case, however I'm worried about the cases bending the added key. Should I keep it in the supplied case, or would it be fine in one of these other cases do you think? Thanks!

Most cases should accommodate the LH Ab/Eb lever if the lid cushion is soft enough or there's ample room so it's not applying any pressure on the LH levers.

You'll see if it's squashing the LH levers if you can see an impression of them in the fabric. If the case maker has done their work, their cases should be suitable most makes of clarinet and especially ones with the LH Ab/Eb lever which is what most pro level clarinets have fitted as standard now.

Chris.

If I'm correct, the case is molded from the r13 prestige which has the Eb key so you should be fine.
