2/27/14 FOR SALE: USED BUFFET BASS CLARINET LOW C MODEL 1193. I recently had this Bass Clarinet serviced and was told that it is in "Very Good" to "Excellent" condition by the technician. I was also told that the pads are in "great shape". The technician told me that what makes my Bass Clarinet such a "good buy" is the fact that it was made with one long piece of African hardwood and not two like the ones the factory are turning out now (I wasn't totally clear on what this meant since there are two separate wood pieces that you put together to play but I'm sure that some out there will). I will consider all REASONABLE offers and provide more information and pictures to interested buyers.
