Product Information

This new model Buffet was recently added to the range as a next step up from an E11 but at a level just below the E13. The Buffet E12FL model features the extra Eb lever key, made clear by the extra L in the model code. This provides an alternative fingering that is only usual found on more expensive models.

The E12 range benefits from improved manufacturing processes over the E11, and still retains the wonderful Buffet tone that is so popular. The body is derived from Buffet professional models and is produced in Buffets French workshops, the keys are then assembled and the instrument is quality checked at their German workshops in Markneurkirchen.

Supplied in backpack style case with mouthpiece, plus various BG and Vandoren accessories.

  • Leather pads for improved durability and tone hole covering
  • Carefully selected and stabilised Grenadilla wood
  • The wood is covered with a colourless varnish to protect against cracks and scratches
  • This 'L' model features the extra left hand Eb key

Buffet E12FL - Bb Clarinet Reviews

Anonymous review via Feefo  -  2022-12-05

I put a lot of research into the purchase of my new clarinet, and the E12-FL does not disappoint. It is a pleasure to play, and the extra key is fantastic. It took some time to get used to but is certainly useful for every player, no matter their ability level. It is a wooden Buffet, and I was not surprised that the tenon between the top and bottom joint needed adjustment by Dawkes' fantastic workshop team, but this was easily and swiftly taken care of, with almost no time between sending it for adjustment and receiving it back. I highly recommend ordering a bore oil to treat this clarinet in its infancy to prolong its beautiful wooden body, as now I am certain this will be an instrument that will last my lifetime. If you are looking to buy a wooden clarinet, don't want to break the bank, but also don't want to have to upgrade again in the foreseeable future this is your instrument (and Dawkes Music is your dealer)

I\'m still getting used to the new clarinet, so the star rating is tentative, but I\'m happy with it so far. I do find the extra left-hand Eb key on this model a useful addition.

The instrument was in excellent condition. The problem was that I could not get on with the left hand Eb key. It covered too much of the other keys.
