Welcome to the Ann Arbor Clarinet Connection, an Authorized Buffet Crampon Professional Dealer. It's hard to believe but 2018 is our 10th Anniversary of providing hand-selected Buffet Crampon clarinets to a discerning clientele. To all of you who have placed your trust in us, thank you! Our core philosophy remains in place: to stock Buffet Crampon clarinets that provide our clients with instruments that not only exhibit desired traits of evenness of scale, superior intonation, and richness of tone, but also provide personality, the ability to create and manipulate tonal colors. To that end, we stock a wide variety of Buffet models, and on restocking trips to the Buffet Crampon factory outside of Paris and to the Buffet Group USA headquarters in Jacksonville, FL are most interested in finding clarinets with personality regardless of model. This service is provided to you at no extra charge.
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. Spring tensions and key heights are regulated on all instruments. All sales include Buffet Crampon's Warranty Policies. Trade-ins are welcomed.
We just returned from our 2nd restocking trip to the Buffet Crampon factory in Mantes-la-Ville, France. We had another memorable time visiting the factory, and picked up 18 instruments, 10 Bbs and 8 As, including Legendes, RC Prestiges, R13 Prestiges, Festivals, Traditions, and R13s. Please be in touch if you are interested in any of these.
A2C2 is pleased to be the exclusive US distributor of Ramon Wodkowski mouthpieces!! We have begun receiving custom-made Wodkowski mouthpieces in very small batches in a variety of facings. Please email or call for more details.
