If it was a British company I would expect that to be an April Fool thing.
Since I was thinking of maybe buying one at some point in my life:
On Le Figaro there was an interesting article about Adolf Sax/Selmer and Buffet Crampon.
I am somehow proud of the fact that we are still discussing two brands more than a century old (I do not have a Buffet clarinet yet, few Selmers)
The future of the old industrial nations is in exploiting their potential for classy, well made and well finished products in a context of smaller companies with fewer employees and product range.
My actual concern was that nothing really classy can come from a continent that still includes Essex (yes: UK is in Europe, the Old Continent).I thought you might have read it a “ class” thing as in “ for rich people only” but I admit that it could be coming dow to the same result nonetheless
