Okay, I'm not going to sit here and insult your intelligence by giving the manufacturer's descriptions, because they aren't really that helpful.  All of them are some variation of "black with shiny keys."   I will, however, give my own comments, which are informative but have been accused of being laced with sarcasm.  (I've been spending too much time in the shop without the windows open again.)

Buffet R13 Bb clarinet
We all have heard that the instrument of choice for schools is the R13.  Why is that?  The short version is that the R13 has been the flagship instrumment of Buffet-Crampon for decades, and a choice of professionals for nearly as long.  It's a good, solid instrument, and my personal favorite of the Buffet models.  Is it my most favoritest clarinet in all the world?  No.  It isn't.  But it's my favorite Buffet model.  At any rate, I have some in stock for sale if anyone is interested in giving one a good home.  I have hand picked these myself, and store them in a climate-controlled environment. 

In stock: Buffet R13 Bb clarinet with silver plated keys
Cost: $3993 plus applicable sales tax and shipping

E12F Bb clarinet
The E12F Bb clarinet is a good intermediate instrument, and fantastic for a beginner.  In fact, if you or the student you are buying for just want ONE Buffet clarinet to get you all the way through high school without spending an arm and a leg, this is the one.  It comes with silver keys, leather pads, and a super nifty-neato backpack case.

E11 C clarinet
It's just so gosh-darn cute!!!!  This is an intermediate clarinet pitched in the key of C.  Perfect for early Beethoven, Reicha quintets (of which there are legion), Italian opera, and playing in your church orchestra without having to transpose the music.  There is also The Moldau and Symphonie Fantastique.  I'm sure there are others, but I can't remember what they are right now.  For what it's worth, the RC Prestige C clarinet is the only other C clarinet that Buffet makes, and quite frankly, $7500+ is a lot of real estate to have sitting around when you only use it maybe once or twice a year.

In stock: Buffet E11 C clarinet
