Clarinet for Sale - Buffet Crampon

B-Flat clarinet. Professional. In excellent condition and plays beautifully. Made in Paris. I am the original owner and babied it while playing at Ithaca school of Music. Purchased at International Woodwind & Brass in Manhattan in the 1980's.

While it is near and dear to me, I simply do not play any longer.

Note that the pads have been completely replaced once, and are still in good shape ... but a replacement down the road should be expected, depending on how much it is played.

Asking $550.00 (cash only, or certified check okay)

PS: sorry, no mouthpiece. I had a set of three, and they disappeared when I recently moved. Major bummer. So, you will need your own mouthpiece in order to test it out. I do have a nice mouthpiece cover, included. Also, I will thrown in a music stand and sheet music and practice books!

Inquire at: sharon.paulsen.321@gmail.com and I can provide many pics, answer questions.

Thanks!
