2022 saw a return to more normalcy for those of us involved in the performing arts, here's to an even better 2023!
Buffet Crampon USA has announced a price increase effective January 1, 2023, the prices on our website reflect that increase. That said, we do have a couple of remaining Demo models from last year, so if you are open to purchasing a demo instrument call or write for more info. In addition we have plans to make a restocking trip to Jacksonville sometime in the coming months, so if you have your heart set on a particular model please be in touch so that we can add it to our wish list.
Ann Arbor Clarinet Connection is owned by professional clarinetists with a singular purpose: to provide our clients with the most interesting, resonant, complex, colorful clarinets that Buffet Crampon produces. All of the instruments we stock are hand-selected at either the Buffet Crampon factory in Mantes-la-Ville, France, or at the Buffet Crampon North American headquarters in Jacksonville, FL. Spring tensions and key heights are regulated on all instruments. All sales include Buffet Crampon's Warranty Policies. Trade-ins are always welcome!
In addition, all professional model Buffet Crampon clarinets that A2C2 sells can be set-up in-house for a nominal charge. This set-up includes an upgrade to cork pads and Buffet Custom GT pads on R13 models, or to cork pads on the upper joint of Tradition, Festival, RC, R13 Prestige, and RC Prestige models.
It is our stated goal to provide the best Buffet Crampon clarinets to our clients in the most simple means possible. Visiting Ann Arbor is an option, of course, and we provide a comfortable, stress-free environment to play through instruments. We don't participate in social media as we value your privacy. If coming to Ann Arbor isn't possible, we'll happily send instruments to you for trial.
Please call or write with any questions, or to discuss the best way to get Buffet Crampon clarinets in your hands.
We offer a range of professional clarinet repairs and adjustments at a reasonable bench rate. Repads can be done in cork, synthetic, or Buffet Crampon leather pads. New instruments purchased through us are protected from mechanical issues under warranty (durations vary), and we are capable of fixing most any problem that may arise. We also offer complimentary maintenance for life on all new instrument purchases!
