Please tell me what Brand and style my clarinet is
« on: June 14, 2022, 04:36:43 PM »
I have a clarinet which has no branding on it. It only says, Made in Germany, and has a number: 1206894 on it. The mouthpiece is plastic and was purchased separately. The clarinet appears to be made of wood.

Just a guess, but I think it's probably a Buffet E11.  I haven't come across any serial number lists for the E11, so can't help you there.


Dave has some pretty good Buffet info in this thread - https://clarinetpages.info/smf/index.php?topic=1676.0

With a Fobes Debut, a decent mouthpiece so I'm told...

It's french, so that rules out the R13. It's wood, so that rules out a B12.

It's most likely an E11. If you get a flashlight and hold it juuuuust right against where the logo would be, you should be able to find a ghostly image of "E11" still remaining.
