Question
My father has a clarinet, stamped Evette Shaefer, modele Buffet Crampon.  B3558.  It was purchased in the 1940's.  What info can you tell me about it?  Thank you.

Answer
Hello,
  I apologize for the delay in my answer.  I've had a few family emergencies over the past few weeks.  From what I can tell the instrument was manufactured in 1930.  Beyond that, I don't have much info.  I'd have to see the instrument to tell you what, if any work is needed.  Buffet instruments are usually really solid instruments so I'd take it in to a shop to be evaluated.   Hope this helps.
