One of several professional clarinets we are offering for sale. This is a super-rare Buffet Crampon Super Dynaction clarinet in Bb. It is in excellent condition: wood has no chips, cracks or repairs and was just bore oiled. Gold plated keys with some crackling on most of it, and some wear mostly on the register key. (I was tempted to get this replated, but it was last set up by the great Wojtek Komsta, and plays amazingly.) Pads are in excellent condition, and appear to be Valentino Masters’ series on the lower joint, and cork on the upper.

This is the rarest of all the Buffet models, made roughly 1964-1970, but only sporadically, with only a few examples known, and fewer still this side of the Atlantic. I’d be surprised if you can find ten of them in the States. It was not available in the U.S, and was offered as a jazz alternative to the European S1, BC20, and Continentales of the time. S/n F108256, 1969, purchased in Paris in 1970 by the original owner’s math teacher. Child photo, a brief history, and some original paperwork in French from 1970 included.
I was planning to keep this along with my other unusual Buffets, but I have some seventy clarinets, so I’m gonna let it go to someone who wants the bragging rights. Because let’s face it: neither you nor your professor friends have ever seen an SDA!
