I have come across a old wooden evette and schaeffer clarinet that also says made in france, and modele buffet champon or something like that, it`s pretty worn down. It plays prety nice, but i`m not much of a clarinet player, and I can`t really find a good serial number list to identify it. the serial number is B8193. Any comments on this clarinet would be helpful. thanks

You could try buffet-crampons` homepage, but I tried it with the serial number you wrote down, and there was no match found. You could also try to contact them. I think I would do that at least http://www.buffet-crampon.com/SerialNumber2_Strings.asp

thanks. I emailed them like 3 weeks ago and havn`t got a reply. maybe i should just spam them. I tried several serial number charts, but it was never in them, the closest match being some clarinet from like 1876 or something, but teh range of serial numbers for that was B1-B999 and mine has 4 numbers

I own an Evette & Schaffer serial no. K33487, about 1975 vintage. Found the following info: "Evette and Schaeffer, Paris bought out the Buffet Company in 1885 and continued to sell clarinets under the Evette and Schaffer name labeled “Evette & Schaeffer, Modele Buffet Crampon, Paris” until the early 1980’s. These clarinets were designed for the advanced amateur/semi-professional player. The Evette & Schaffer name was dropped in the early 1980’ and the clarinets were then sold as the Buffet E-13, which was discontinued in 2003." Plays great, but not as good as my 1947 Buffet.

G,day! I have a Buffet E&S clarinet with a B prefix,...serial number B1074. I recently had it overhauled, and the technician told me that the Buffet company had the B prefix clarinets produced in Germany around the 1930's-40's (probably an experiment in cost cutting, so that's why they won't own up), which is a bit cheeky 'cause the bell of my instrument says, "Made in France". Regardless, they are up to standard with any Evette & Shaeffer clarinet out there, because the Germans have always made better instruments than the French anyway...(my opinion). Mine's going up for sale on ebay today. Cheers.

<<I emailed them like 3 weeks ago and havn`t got a reply.>>

Imagine that! I have tried 4 times to contact someone in regards to my clarinet...because I bought a BSpecialX model from Sam Ash, and things are already wearing off. They were wearing off a month after I got it. Like the wood stain. Then the barrel wouldn't come off after I would play because the wood was left too tight at the base of that tenon. I have never heard back from them and will never buy a buffet clarinet again (It's been 7 months now). My next clarinet is Rossi. They are more expensive, but well worth it. I would recommend them to anyone!
