Quality Wooden Clarinets for Sale

All clarinet have been thoroughly examined by N-Tune Music – a respected repair facility where I send my own clarinet for overhauls. All necessary pads, corks and mechanisms were replaced. Each of these instruments is in EXCELLENT condition and are ready to play!

During the Back-to-School sale, all clarinets are $150 off the price shown AND free shipping with insurance is included. Here’s a review from a former customer:

I recently purchased a refurbished Buffet E-11 clarinet.  The price was incredibly reasonable, and it had been painstakingly serviced.  It was a joy to play straight out of the case.  The purchase process was easy and timely.  The start to finish time was a week.  The shipping/packing was immaculate and very secure.  Signature release meant total security in receiving the instrument.  Thanks again! – Lori S. from California

Noblet Paris Clarinet Model “N” – Excellent condition

This beautiful Noblet “N” Clarinet is in excellent condition.

It has recently been checked by a quality repair facility and pads/corks etc. were replaced as needed. Noblet “N” clarinets are difficult to find and are quality instruments for a student musician. They are similar to a mid-level Yamaha (new – $1300) or Selmer (new – $1400) wooden clarinet. This instrument includes a basic mouthpiece.

As a clarinet lesson teacher and band director, I only resell high-quality instruments that can bring joy to a student for years. I like to see families invest in a quality instrument and save substantial money in the process. Please feel free to contact me for more information.
