  1. Bb Tenor
    Hi everyone! I'm on a hunt for a solid tenor. I'm finished my classical saxophone masters last year, my main instrument is alto (Selmer III). I played a lot of tenor at my university (Selmer II) and now I want to buy something on my own. I also play some jazz/funk/rock, so what I'm looking for...
  2. Evette & Schaeffer Buffet-Crampon, S.A.
    As there are not many videos on you tube of these fantastic saxes, I thought I would share these ones here. The player is a friend of mine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v967RXwfCS4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2W3h...ature=youtu.be By the way, the sax is on sale...
  3. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hi, I am having my great-grandfather's tenor saxophone restored. It's a Buffet Evette-Schaeffer from 1901. My sax repair person has run into a snag. Apparently, he orders his mylar washers from Kraus, and they are backordered. Would any of you have some mylar washers to...
  4. Clarinet
    This one: https://www.shopgoodwill.com/viewItem.asp?itemID=40914226 It looks like it might be a stencil of a 1910s Buffet C, or just one marked Buffet? Whoever bought it got a very nice deal.
  5. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Yesterday I had the chance to play a 1962's Buffet Crampon BC-20 Bes clarinet. The instrument recently had a check-up, and all pads looked and felt good (I did not perform a suction test, but everything spoke very easily). I'm in love with its tone, but intonation is slightly less good than my...
  6. Necks
    Hi, Gloger-handKraft and Aronson have confirmed that they can make a custom replacement neck specifically for SDA alto. Both have excellent reputation and there is not much difference in price. Shipping costs are not an issues as I can have the neck delivered in the US or Europe. Any comments...
  7. Flute & Piccolo
    Hey guys! I'm new here and wanted to introduce myself showing you a cool old flute i found and hopefully one of you might have more information regarding its history! I bought this flute around 10 years ago on a flea market, it has a very faded Buffet Crampon logo (with Brevete SGDG beneath...
  8. Evette & Schaeffer Buffet-Crampon, S.A.
    I've recently encountered a fella selling a very new looking Buffet-Crampon Bari. The pictures supplied don't do justice for investigation and I personally want to see more, but it looks like a their one of their new Asian-made horns, as the logo is visible on the bell. I asked if it was a...
  9. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    I have just purchased an Agility Winds tenor saxophone from Tempest Musical Instruments in Texas. My previous horn was a Buffet SuperDynaction with a serial number of 7197. It had reached the end of the line and required a complete overhaul. This would require a huge outlay of cash which would...

  11. Clarinet
    I would post the youtube video for this, but I'm at school and can't access it, so here's the link on Buffet's site: http://buffet-crampon.com/en/content/tradition?f=48&l=10%2C11%2C12 And this: http://buffet-crampon.com/en/actualite/tradition-clarinet Anyone at NAMM gotten to play this yet? I'm...
  12. Evette & Schaeffer Buffet-Crampon, S.A.
    Recently came into possession of a fantastic vintage bari, a 1958 Buffet Super Dynaction. I've read these horns are pretty rare, and this one has a huge, rich sound and great response even in iffy condition. The only commentary I've seen is that apparently these horns are as good as or better...
  13. Clarinet
    Sorry if this has been discussed before, I tried a search but could not get specific enough to whittle down the threads beyond many pages. Looking to possibly upgrading Amanda's clarinet to a Buffet R-13. What I am seeing is a lot of clarinets for sale built in the "Golden Age". Thing is, these...
  14. Evette & Schaeffer Buffet-Crampon, S.A.
    I have a Buffet Crampon (s.a 18-20) tenor sax (serial # 1020). Probably this one http://www.saxpics.com/buffet/SA.htm with wire keyguards. I haven't been playing for several years. But now I thought I could start again. The problem is that I have to fix the sax first. So my question is if it...
  15. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    Which one do you prefer, and why? What are the differences between the two? Are they good quality? I play alto. Thanks. :)

    This was announced by Buffet Group a little while ago, but they just put up the info for their new instruments on their website. According to the description, "Orfeo comes to us out of a collaboration between the Buffet Crampon Research and Development team and a group comprising testers...

    A quick look at the Buffet Crampon website shows that they already put up a showcase of the new instruments! Apparently, the Divine is available in Bb and A (Maybe an Eb coming up? :bluewink:) According to the description, "Whereas the Tosca clarinet was the R13 bore’s top range model, the...

  20. Evette & Schaeffer Buffet-Crampon, S.A.
    The seller can only (so far) give me the sparest of details and only 1 picture and that it is a 'Buffet Evette': LH bell keys, modernish key-guards, no High F# key... Looks identical to this one on eBay (based on the layout and engraving)...
