NÚMEROS DE SÉRIE

Uma pesquisa em eterno andamento. Ás vezes as numerações tem datação certa, outras, se baseia em congeturas. Fontes, são os sites especializados encontrados na NET. Se seu clarinete não está listado, não entre em pánico: pode ser problema de datação faltante, a marca de seu clarinete é um "stencil", ou o fabricante teve uma produção limitada no tempo ou/e na quantidade. Mas isto não quer dizer NADA sobre a qulidade de seu instrumento!

Pode, neste caso, ser útil visitar a página MARCAS E LOGOTIPOS

* Note: Vincent Bach used the trade names of Stradivarius, Mercedes, Mercury, Minerva, & Apollo. For some unknown reason, Bach numerical order varies from time to time. For example, in 1928 the Apollo serial numbers were 8600 - 8700. In 1939 the Mercury models had serial numbers in the 10,000's. The first Minerva (#2722) was manufactured in 1958.

BUFFET CRAMPON

  The modern Buffet logo first appeared on Buffets approximately in 1844  
Late 1800s No serial numbers

Wrap around register key
"teapot" tilted type register vent with no register vent protruding into the bore
No throat adjustment screw

"H. Bettoney" is stamped on the Bell as the US importer.  LP can be lightly seen under the UJ under the Made in France stamp below the Buffet Emblem.  The 1906 version of this clarinet has a normal backside register key & vent.

These early Buffets featured the cutout below the crows foot and a flat spring underneath the F#/C# key.  You can see the metal piece as the touch point for the flat spring in the cutout.  It also featured a flat spring on the C#/G#

 

 

 

 

 

1910-1930s 1910-1930s Buffets were imported by Carl Fisher and had an appropriate designation to that.  Any "LP" stamp designated Low Pitch at 440hz  
1936ish keywork modification (at least 1936) when the [a] added throat adjustment screw, [b] LH pinky spatula keys went from 1 shared post to two posts and rods; [c] and 2 horizontally placed screw thumbrest.  [d] The LH side sliver key still closes a small vent key - fork Eb/Bb mechanism (see pics of 1936 in SN list)  
1941-1950 Carl Fisher Musical Instruments Company of New York continued to import the Buffet clarinets.  They (Carl Fisher and not Buffet) had the designations of R13, R13 1/2, R14, R14 1/2, R16 R16 1/2, R16 3/4 - this was found in the Carl Fisher catalogs, not on the clarinet itself. 
The "1/2" represented an Eb lever.
The R14 had 17 keys and 7 rings & the Eb lever. 
R16 was the 19 key, 7 ring with articulated G#, Eb lever and forked Eb key.
R16 3/4 had 20 keys, 7 rings, articulated G#, Eb lever, forked Bb and a partridge in a pear tree !!
 
pre R-13 Pre-R13s Stopped production around 1955.  Visual attributes: Shared throat post keys; key guide for top two trill keys is a flat metal with triangular sides.

From at least 1941 - 1955 Pro Buffets had a "Master Bore".  During the 1950-1955 time frame Carree's polycylindrical bore was used experimentally and evolved towards the introduction of the R-13 in 1955.

 
R-13 Started Production in 1955 through today. 

Some "prototypes" were developed earlier than 1955. Primary identification included separate throat key posts; shape of the key guide for the top two trill keys - R-13 has a cylinder with slot cut down the middle.

 

 
  Early R13s has a flat spring for the C#/G# key until, supposedly 1970.  To some, this provides a much smooth key action.  This was the preferred method going back to the earliest Buffets but was not used in the 1940s - mid 1950's - as a needle spring was used.

We offer a service where we can retrofit a flat spring to the C#/G# key for those that prefer it (the needle spring can be unhooked and kept in position if desired)


 
R-13 RC    
E-13
(High end Intermediate)
pre E-13s (before they were sold as Buffets) are Evette-Schaeffer and Evette clarinets - please see that section for more information.  
C-12
(Conservatory/High end Intermediate)
   
E-11
(Beginner ntermediate)
Made in Germany.  Current E-11s have plastic tonehole inserts  
Academy
R113
R113s were also known as the Academy model which were supposedly identical to R13 with some minor default such as body or key scratched.

Apparently the Buffets from 38,000 through 41,000 were designed with a lower joint a bit too large.  This created a problem with clarinetists playing the instrument in tune and Buffet was losing business. Buffet brought in Hans Moenig who some how corrected the faults and these instruments were relabeled as an Academy model and sold as a student model.

 
International German made.  
S-1 1970s.  R-13 with a inverse taper barrel for a slightly brighter sound. Recognizable by the S1 in a diamond below the Buffet emblem.  
Limite A store marketed brand (Brooke Mays, Caldwell Music of the US) of the E-11 with a cheaper plastic thumbrest, soft sided case, silver plated keys.

Recognizable by "Limite" in script below the Buffet emblem.

 
Olds Opera &
Linton
supposed R-13 stencils (or Master Models) from the 1960s and 1970s. BUT since this really can't be proven they really don't sell for much.  
Jazz Festival    
Buffet Elite Manufactured from the 1980s through 2002. Thin wall body made of a premium grenadilla. The reinforcing rings were made of black polycarbonate fiber.  It was supposedly designed for "chamber" settings and not orchestra or concert band setting  
B12 (brushed) Very lightweight brushed plastic, great for beginners.  Made in West Germany and the quality is unmatched for a student instrument.  Excellent keywork, fit and finish.  
B12 (polished)    
Evette predecessor to the B12 - separate throat key posts, triangular trill key guide an a large Evette emblem on a plastic body

Between 1968 and 1974 Buffet also made the Super Dynaction Bb clarinet.  Few of these are known in existance though they seem to have a low demand due to their jazz heritage.

Evette Master models with the cutout under the RH  crow feet are the identified R-13 rejects.

Approximately 1990 Buffet changed their lineup.

Pre-1990

Pro to Beginner:  R13 (Pro) - C12 (Intermediate) - E45 (Intermediate) - E11 (Beginner) - B12 (Beginner)

Post 1990

Pro to Begginer: R13 (Pro) - E13 (Intermediate) & C12 (conservatory intermediate) - E12 (Intermediate) - E11 (Beg) - B12 (Beg)

C-13 (aka International)  is the equivalent to an E-11 but it was manufactured as a "private brand" for another US company
