Evette made by Buffet Crampon
Thanks to Patrick Carcerano for giving me the opportunity to review this Evette.
Serial # D1383
Bore LH joint top: 14.6mm
Bore LH joint at bottom: 14.5mm This particular clarinet tested way better than most Evettes and better than many Buffets!
Intonation summary: Wow! This is unexpected for me! Fantastic intonation. This must be poly-cylindrical. I was not going to say the 1mm difference in the bore was enough to be poly-bore. This plays as well as many professional Buffets and much better than the one stamped “Evette sponsored by Buffet.”
Key work quality: Typical Buffet. I like Noblet key work better, but this is fine.
This clarinet is most appropriate for: Anyone, beginner to professional.
Condition issues noted: None.
