And Yes ... Bass  ... tell about the Buffet "A !!!!!!!



my friend George Stathos from New York (clarinet player) had it poorly stored in the attic somewhere for too many years.   very dry and ready to explode, LOL.  its in key of A, it has the genuine Buffet logo on it, don't remember if it had LP stamped on it or not (i hope its LP).  one of the trill keys is missing, the one usually gets removed by Greek players.  the repair tech said he can find one from buffet to replace it.  its been soaking in oil for few weeks.  it should be ready within couple of weeks or so, i'll post pics when i get it.

Clarinet repair is a craft totally distinct from clarinet playing. In my home town, a substantial rebuild would cost me $300 CDN. If I did it myself, I would spend far more on the necessary tools and would do a poor job that would still require $300 of work to make right. I've changed a few pads and corks over the years for emergency repairs, but wouldn't dare tackle a full restore.


And for what it's worth, I haven't oiled my mid-70s buffet in 40 years. I think it's a music store up-sell with no merit, but the oil only costs a couple of bucks so if it makes you happy do it.

the 1rst player is a really master. The rest seems like simply noise-makers ..

i am paying $600 to re-haul a beautiful A buffet got from a friend, and its taking 10 weeks!  i hope it'll be worth it.  i wouldn't dare to do it myself, i don't mind experimenting with mouthpieces but not on a rare instrument.  kudos to you Nikos for learning how to do some of it.  it is time consuming for sure.


Thanks Bass !!! ... I really enjoy doing this work... I would like to learn how to do the "Functional"" work or repadding/recorking and voicing/spring work ... and eventually learn how to do crack repairs ..... some day !!!!!


Take a look at these 2 YouTube clips I did a few years ago ... the 2nd one in particular shows the various stages of the cosmetic reconditioning ....
