Buffet Crampon Evette-Schaeffer K-series Master Model Bb Clarinet


The Evette-Schaeffer Master Models range from K5000 to K11000 which corresponds to manufacture from 1953 to approximately 1961. This also corresponds to the introduction of the Buffet R-13 clarinet.  Some surmise that the Master Models were made from the same wood selection as the R-13s, but were later rejected due to a few visual flaws, but Buffet has not confirmed this theory.

A 1960’s Buffet Brochure about the Evette-Schaeffer Master Model says: “Instruments that embody considerable hand craftsmanship, as do all the Buffet products, will vary slightly from instrument to instrument. Those Evette & Schaeffer clarinets that surpass the superb quality characteristic of all Evette-Schaeffer instruments, are set aside to comprise the ME-13 Master Model Evette & Schaeffer clarinets.”

This pre-owned instrument has gone through our shop for a full check-up and has been put in top playing condition.  It has had pads leveled, any necessary adjustments made, and has been cleaned.
