Great Price on a Professional R13 Clarinet
Product Description

Outstanding vintage Buffet Paris R13 series clarinet in Bb, serial number 96938. This is a fantastic option for players looking to get an R13 on a budget. It has been freshly repadded in our repair shop by top clarinet tech Audrey Denny, and is ready for its new lease on life.


This clarinet hearkens back to the golden age of Buffet, when they started to really become known as the best of the best in the clarinet world. Its grenadilla wood body shows no cracks and no previous cracks repairs, a testament to the density of the wood used back then. The keywork shows minor finish wear as to be expected, but is still in great overall shape. It has a brand new, full pad job in it, featuring Valentino Master pads and some cork pads in the proper places, with long-lasting synthetic material used as the regulation materials. It feels precise and new under your hands.


This R13 plays with a clear, concise, and warm tone, from low E up throughout the range of the instrument. It offers a small amount of back pressure to give you something to push against, but overall is a fairly free blowing clarinet, while retaining a good focus and core. A great, low priced option for players shopping for their first R13. Ships in a hard case.
