Announcing a new bass clarinet service and showplace!


1193



It had come to our attention, over the past several years, that there are no locations in North America where you can easily try out multiple bass clarinets. Most shops only carry one or two bass clarinets. Inventory in Jacksonville changes quickly, as they replenish vendors all over North America.


I have now solved this problem by deciding to carry a large selection of Buffet bass clarinets in my inventory. These instruments will be availble for you to test and try on an appointment basis.


100% of the bass clarinets in my inventory have been personally selected at the Buffet Facility in Jacksonville or at the Buffet factory outside of Paris.



  Bass Clarinets

Selection criteria include:          

  • Excellent Tone Quality
  • Excellent response
  • Excellent intonation
  • Excellent quality wood
  • Excellent quality of manufacture

If the instrument fails any of these tests, it is not selected for sale by this site.

We feature a selection of all Buffet professional level horns, including the 1193 Prestige, the 1193-G Prestige Greenline, and the 1195 Tosca bass clarinet. The intent is to have enough bass clarinets available so that you can choose which model you prefer, and to be able to pick one of that model from the current inventory.


There are two ways that you can sample these instruments. One, of course, is to come here to my workshop and try as many as you like. (While you are here, you can also try my World Famous "Lawrie Bloom" bass clarinet mouthpieces, or the new, critically acclaimed Virtuoso mouthpiece).


Or, if you cannot make the  trip, I can also select an instrument for you, based on your requirements. I can then ship it to you for a one week trial period. Please call  with your respective requirements.

 

See below for the descriptions of some of these bass clarinets. They are all personally selected, play tested, set-up, and adjusted and ready to play!

A great 1193 - dark, focused, responsive

One of the very best 1193's I have tried in the past five or six years. It has everything you need for successful orchestral playing, with its rich, dark, focused sound. Great for Strauss and Wagner!

An excellent Greenline bass clarinet. Rich, dark, focused sound with plenty of responsiveness. This instrument has a very "grounded" feel. I think I could play anything in the literature on it.
