Lisa Canning’s commitment to excellence, as well as her competitive pricing, makes her indispensable in choosing the best Buffet clarinets. She is extraordinarily gifted in matching clarinets to personalities, whether it is for performers, teachers or students. I not only use Buffet clarinets in the St. Louis Symphony that Lisa has chosen, but I encourage my colleagues and students to work with her as well.

I believe Lisa’s Clarinet Shop is the best place to find a first class clarinet. Lisa is an excellent clarinetist herself, so she knows a good clarinet when she plays one. I am now playing on A and B-flat Buffet R-13’s that I got from Lisa, and am very happy with them both. I recommend her shop to my students, and to anyone who wants to find a really fine clarinet.

I have been extremely pleased with the excellent products and services I’ve gotten from Lisa. I bought my last five Buffets from her, including clarinets in Bb, A, Eb, C, and Bass Clarinet. I recommend her without reservation!

Lisa Canning is in a class by herself when it comes to selecting first class Buffet clarinets. My school has ordered several clarinet from bass to Eb clarinets and they have all been exceptional. I recommend Lisa for all your Buffet clarinet needs. You will not be disappointed

Lisa has an unsurpassed ability to choose the cream of the clarinet crop. I and my students are grateful recipients of her expertise.
Based on my 30 years of experience helping others sound and play their best, if any on this list describe you its time to buy a new clarinet; or at least contact me and I will explain in greater detail why your moment to upgrade has arrived. http://bit.ly/387EaFe
What sets Lisa’s Clarinet Shop apart from the others is that, for more than three decades, I have worked closely with my repair technician in the set up of each new clarinet.I know how to work with a technician to resolve intonation problems, sleuth complex technical problems that are causing voicing and resistance challenges that are not inherent in the instrument, and pretty much every other technical problem that most professional clarinetists and sales people have no idea can be solved. We do this work in order to ensure you can select the perfect instruments for you.
My abilities are an integral part of the success I have in matching the perfect instrument to its musician. Because every instrument is unique, even coming from the factory, each one will have different mechanical needs and challenges. The work we do to each instrument varies and is specific to each instrument as a result. Learn more about our set up process here: http://bit.ly/3pAHdvs
We do accept used Buffet’s on trade that meet our specifications. To learn more about our trade in service if you wish to buy a new instrument or simply wish to sell one you have: https://bit.ly/2JGnJ9q
