Buffet Crampon Evette saxophones are Taiwanese (ROC) made entry level saxophones of mediocre quality. Most likely it is fairly new (last 10 years or so) as it is Boosey & Hawkes' current budget line, previously they used different branding for their budget saxophones that were made in Eastern Europe. They sell for about 300 second hand in the UK.
