Product code: BC2540-2-0 Manufacturer: Buffet

The Buffet B12 student clarinet is among the most recommended starter instruments on the market. It’s constructed from a tough ABS polymer which resists the cracking and splitting that can occur in wooden instruments. This material is lightweight, easy to clean and maintain, and allows the B12 to withstand outdoor use in marching bands or orchestras. Its elegant, ergonomic design and refined tone ensure an exceptional playing experience for all budding clarinettists.

Its carefully designed keywork mechanism is similar to systems found on professional clarinets and provides optimum playability. Each silver-plated key is cold forged and induction soldered for added durability, and reinforced with pointed needle springs for a quick, light response. Undercut tone holes improve the B12’s intonation and projection, and the long lasting double fish skin pads establish reliable airtight seals.

An adjustable thumb rest ensures a comfortable playing position allowing for a firm grip on the clarinet's body without having to over-stretch to reach the keys. It also features a ring to which a neck strap can be attached in order to reduce the strain put on young players’ shoulders and backs.

Outfits are supplied in a backpack style case with shoulder straps and includes a reed, mouthpiece cap, cleaning materials, and maintenance information.
