Evette made by Buffet Crampon

Thanks to Patrick Carcerano for giving me the opportunity to review this Evette.

Serial # D1383

Barrel: 65.0mm

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 results taken when playing loud and not lipping. See how to interpret these results on the Model Comparison Page.

For this test, I pulled 0 at the barrel and 0 at the center tenon.

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.
