The Buffet E12F clarinet is a further step up from the E11 offering better tone quality and superior materials. The body is derived from the Buffet professional models and are manufactured in France and tested in German workshops. The E12F uses the Boehm system and is made completely of unstained African Blackwood (Grenadilla) which has been treated and varnished to reduce marks left by scratches and help prevent cracking. The clarinet has silver plated key system and has leather pads for improved tone hold covering and durability. Comes with a backpack style case with mouthpiece and Vandoren and BG accessories.
