Hand-Selected Buffet Crampon Clarinets

At Pereira 3D, I travel to the Buffet Crampon USA headquarters and select the very best instruments in their stock. From there, each instrument is initially set up to ensure all pads seal properly, pads are upgraded on some models to improve the instrument's resonance and response, the mechanism is properly adjusted, poor stock bumpers are replaced, pad heights are corrected, etc. This means you receive a superb-quality instrument in great working order from the very start.

Clarinets are hand-selected for their quality of wood, tone/resonance qualities, reliable intonation, and a great blow-through.

In addition, if a clarinet model you wish to purchase is not in stock, you're welcome to select one yourself from the Buffet Crampon Showroom in New York City or the Buffet Crampon USA headquarters in Jacksonville, FL, and purchase it through Pereira 3D LLC, or I can make a trip and select the best clarinet to fit your needs.

Upgrade Package for New Clarinets

Even though instruments are already hand-selected and set-up before purchase, I also offer additional services to bring an already-great instrument to another level. Below you can find what the Artisan Set-up package includes:

Pereira 3D Artisan Set-up for Bb, A, and Eb Clarinets - $250

  • All pads are upgraded - Cork on the upper joint & Valentino Masters, leather, or Gore-Tex on the lower joint

  • Beveling of particular cork pads to improve venting/response and enhance tonal uniformity

  • All tone holes are refinished to ensure an optimal seal

  • All original bumpers are replaced with high-quality materials to improve the overall action of keys

  • Key fitting and spring tensions are checked once more to further enhance the action

  • All hinge rods are lubricated with premium oil and pivot screws with premium grease

  • Final play-testing and adjustments as needed to ensure the clarinet performs at its highest potential

New Instrument Repair Credit

New clarinets purchased from Pereira 3D are professionally set up from the start for a good seal and properly regulated mechanism, which includes pad adjustments/replacement, spring tension adjustments, key fitting, and replacement of any bumpers that are in poor condition. I recommend that instruments should be regulated every 6 months to keep them in the ideal playing condition, so I offer a repair credit for instruments bought from Pereira 3D:

Student/Intermediate Clarinets (i.e. Prodige, E11, E12F) - $50 Repair Credit

Professional Clarinets (Gala, R13 & up) - $100 Repair Credit
