Product Description

This is an excellent condition vintage Buffet Crampon Paris R13 series Bb clarinet. This clarinet is currently in our repair shop in line for a complete cleaning and repad. We'll clean and oil the instrument, replacing all pads and material, and it will ship out to you in perfect regulation.

 

This clarinet came to us with mis-matched joints, from the same era. The top joint is # 171076 and bottom joint is # 135913. If I had to guess, I'd say the original buyer got the instrument with # 135913, but the upper joint probably cracked and was factory warrantied with a new joint, slightly newer. The instrument does have vintage bell and barrel (64mm), as well as a newer Buffet Chadosh barrel (65mm), all included.

 

This instrument shows no previous damages. That include no cracks or crack repairs. It does also have a matching original era bell and barrel, also in pristine shape. It will be repadded using Valentino Master pads, and regulated for intonation and response. Once the work is complete, we'll post a video so you can see it in action. It is currently in its original vintage Buffet case, but the handle is broken, so we may replace it with a newer case. A great professional level grenadilla wood R13 at a fantastic price!
