Early R13 Plays Fantastically!
Product Description
Here is a vintage Buffet R13 Bb Clarinet with the serial number #54076. This clarinet has been overhauled recently by our technician Audrey Denny, so all pads have been replaced, new tech cork and grey felt installed, and the keys have very smooth action. This clarinet stands out as it is early for an R13, dating at approximately 1956.This horn plays homogenously and easily across all registers, especially so across the break between Bb and B, there's almost no resistance difference between the two notes.
 
Physically the nickel keys have very minor wear on them, as well as a few small divots on the back side of the joints, these are hardly noticeable and don’t affect the playability. Players looking for a professional clarinet at a great price should take interest in this deal, as this clarinet plays substantially better than R13's of similar age.
 
The barrel measures 65.5mm.
 
This clarinet is pictured with an old tri pack case, please let us know if you would prefer a new Protec Max case instead.
