Very good student clarinet
Alexandr Shcherbakov, 12.01.2021
Sit back, this will be a long story)

First of all, the choice of a musical instrument should be done by yourself, having played on several that interest you. But for a number of reasons this cannot be done. And I read the forums, I also asked the Thomann experts for this, where they confirmed to me that the Crampon E12f buffet is the optimal quality for the clarinet learners in terms of price.

I really enjoyed the service in the store. Thomann is a team of professionals
It took 14 days from the moment of ordering to receiving the clarinet (I live in St. Petersburg, Russia). A third of the time was spent on transferring money. I had mistaken with the reason of the payment (reference), but Thomann went to the meeting and accepted the payment for my order, thanks!

Plus 18% (decent amount) to the price were: delivery(40), currency conversion and bank commission (about 20 euros), customs duty (more than 100 euros). Yes, I could buy the same clarinet in Russia. They sell 4-5 years of use clarint at the price of a new one in Thomann )), but I decided it would be better with additional payments but buy a new one

Before that I played clarinets from China, for 50 euros (abs plastic) and 250 euros (wooden). They both turned out to have an uncharacteristic sound, bad response, difficulty in reproducing the upper notes, besides, the wooden one weighed more than 900 grams and sounded out of tune. It was an unpleasant experience, for little money you can't buy a normal clarinet

Now, regarding the model I purchased.
I have never had berfore a good instrument. I am not a good ear of music and Its hard for me to be objective but i'll try:

Sound is definitely better than on chinese clarinets
Now i can play altissimo and know how it sounds )
Playing is easy but switching from b to c (these ones with register key) not so easy as i expected. I will try to solve it in my manner of playing
Now i sense those moments where i need to improve my technique

For me this instrument giving real abilities to improve my skills

Quality of e12f is good enough its pleasure to me play with it, hold it in hands very convinient.

About mouthpiece i have nothing to add, i have two more and later will try clarinet with vandoren 45 and yamaha

Now i realized that all what people say about this model is true.

Thank you guys for giving me this opportunity to play cool

P.S.
I used my previous mouthpiece Vandoren 45 13 and ofcourse its definitely better than Buffet one

Formidable clarinette pour pratique régulière et bon niveau
Achille, 07.11.2013
Je fais de la clarinette depuis 13 ans, en ayant toujours une clarinette de prêt par mon harmonie.
J'ai voulu acheter la mienne. Celle-ci m'a conquis! Un timbre clair, les aigus ne sont pas strident pour quelqu'un qui sait les sortir (do ré mi sur-aigus). Les notes chantent d'elles même si l'on peut dire.
Le clergé très précis permet une rapidité très utile dans les morceaux techniques comme la marche de Radesky.
Et pour finir, l'esthétisme. Je dois dire que j'ai été très agréablement surpris par le bois de cette clarinette qui laisse apparaître toutes ses fibres. Cela donne un camaïeu marron superbe sur le pavillon.
BREF JE RECOMMANDE A TOUT BON CLARINETTISTE!!!

Hervorragendes Instrument
19.02.2016
Ich kaufte kürzlich diese Klarinette bei Thomann in Treppendorf. Ich habe einige Instrumente testen können und bin aufgrund der Ansprache, des weichen Sounds und auch der sehr hochwertigen Verarbeitung bei diesem Instrument geblieben. Ich hatte vorher ein relativ preigünstiges, mit dem ich das Klarinettenspielen lernte. Der Umstieg auf dieses tolle Instrument ist wirklich spür - und hörbar, außerdem beim Spielen merkbar. Auch die fachliche Kompetenz der freundlichen Mitarbeiter bei Thomann überzeugt immer wieder. Man fühlt sich einfach wohl und verstanden und kauft nicht nur ein Instrument. Ich kann jedem nur empfehlen, sich dieses Instrument bei Thomann zu kaufen.
