Oh no! Not another Buffet bass clarinet info!

Discussion in 'The Buffet Family' started by Mooket, Oct 27, 2015.

  1. I apologize ahead for blitzing another thread of identifying question... I appreciate any info and education on my bass clarinet.

    I have this Buffet bass clarinet I play growing up. Recently I realized I don't ANYTHING about it! I Googled it without much info, and wondering if anyone could shed some lights on it.

    It has the usual Buffet Mark on the neck, with "Modele Buffet-Crampon." It's one piece (not upper and lower joint). It's not wood, and has a serial number "1938." I believe it's an upper intermediate model as I was told. But I did find a website indicating a Buffet serial number of 1938 is made in year 1928. Could that be accurate?

    Anyhow, I thank anyone for any info. Good day.

    In other words, pictures are requested.

    I can't think of a Buffet bass clarinet that was rubber or plastic. There are Evette bass clarinets that were. One-piece suggests either really old or plastic/rubber. Also note that Buffet bass clarinets -- unless very old -- don't use the same serial numbers as Bb (soprano) clarinets. In other words, I can't tell you much, but this may help you narrow things down a bit.

    I look forward to seeing your pics.
