Hey i need some advice people, mainly directed at clarinet players.
I was wondering what I could sell my Buffet E-11 Clarinet for
Here are the specs:
-Grenadilla body
-Silver-plated keys
-Blue needle springs
-Adjustable thumbrest

Plus id be willing to throw in a Vandoren 5RV mouthpiece

The clarinet is in pristine condition except for a small chip on the very end of the lower joint which you cannot see when it is assembled and does not affect playability.

Any advice is appreciated

I wish I had a clarinet that good.

I'd say around $4,000-$4,500 would be the price range...I've seen them selling new for around $7,000.

However, it all depends on the buyer.

A buffet E-11 for 7,000$?

They go for 1,750 retail price...
Are you thinking of the R-13? Because my E-11 only cost like, 1,000 dollars...

Right, got them mixed up, sorry

I think my friend sold an E-11 for $750 slightly used...Do you have pictures to show the condition?

It also depends on the condition of the pads, which would be kinda complicated to get a picture of . Also, TS, no one's going to buy a used mouthpiece....

i dont have any pics atm but honestly, ive kept this thing in really good condition, polished and cleaned everything weekly. Ive played it at several halls including a few times at Mechanics Hall and it has always served me well

Not at all.
I've seen beginners clarinets with all closed holes for the ease of playing.

haha true about the mouthpiece
I'm looking at the pads and most are still completely white and the only marks on them are ring indents
There are one or two pads that have a slight browish tinge on parts of them though

and to konkord, really? I've never seen a closed hole clarinet

My local music store has them.
But yeah, I'm gonna say about 800.
Also, it may have been said, but the pads count for a lot as well.

Indeed. Pads are one of the most expensive parts of the instrument.
