I purchased this for college marching band, as I did not want to take my precious Buffet R13 onto the field. It was GREAT! As a former middle school band director, I highly recommend it to any player for outdoor use, and for beginners or intermediates looking for something that is easier to play and sounds better than those el-cheapo "student" clarinets the chain music stores rent to the beginners! Get more for your money!!!
I am a performing musician and private teacher and I have to say that for my students this is the best clarinet to get. It is not the cheapest student clarinet out there but that it is because has amazing quality for a student instrument. Normally I would recommend a Yamaha for my students that play saxophone and flute, but for clarinet I think that the Buffet B12 is superior in quality, sound and overall intonation. The B12 is pretty much a plastic E11 with nickel plated keys rather than silver. I feel that the B12 will definitely last throughout high school. It has many professional features that are found on the R13. The B12 is a very high quality clarinet that will last any student for a very long time.
I was once playing on my Prestige R13 (actually, it was the first day at my high school with it) and I was searching for a clarinet to use for marching band (spend another $3000 on Greenline? No way). I narrowed my search to 3 clarinets: the Yamaha YCL-250, the Vito V40, and the Buffet B12. After trying the YCL-250 and playing on my R13 for a while, I realized that another one of my friends was playing on a B12. She was kind enough to let me try it. Going in, I was expecting a good, in-tune sound from the clarinet, like most Buffets. I did get the good sound, but the clarinet is extremely sharp. Just about anywhere on the clarinet, altissimo, clarion, ect., you're most likely to be 20 sharp. On the bright side, though, the keywork, like any other Buffet, is beyond belief. The keys feel light and fit around your fingers so well. In short, it's very similar to the R13, but there are intonation flaws that makes this clarinet still considered as a student clarinet. It's more personal preference whether you want the B12 or the YCL-250, but either way, you're going to get a great, inexpensive clarinet.
On the advice of our son's clarinet instructor, we bought this clarinet from you and WOW, what a difference it has made. The overall tone and range improved my son's sound almost instantly. This has allowed him to play with others with much more expensive clarinets, and not feel embarrassed. His progression in ability, as well as overall sound, has made many question the short length of his clarinet lessons (2 years now, but only 1 when we bought it). We are very pleased.
My daughter is very pleased with her Buffet B12 clarinet. She loves that it is lightweight and weather resistant for marching band while providing a beautiful, consistent tone for symphony band. The Buffet B12 clarinet is a high quality instrument and an excellent value.
