Product Description

This is an excellent condition vintage Buffet Crampon Paris R13 series clarinet in Bb, serial number 81196. This clarinet is in sterling shape, showing no evidence of previous cracks or repairs. It is currently in our repair shop in line for a fresh cleaning and repad, and will ship in perfect adjustment.


It is so rare to find a vintage R13 in such outstanding shape. This clarinet has obviously been well loved over its life. The grenadilla wood is in great shape, and there are no previous repairs to the keys, which show only mild finish wear on a couple touch points. It is complete with original bell and barrel, and all are in great shape. The instrument had been sitting unplayed for a few years when we received it, and it is time to bring it back to perfect playing shape. Our overhaul will include full disassembly and cleaning/oiling of the body, all new pads and material, and precise regulation. We'll optimize key heights and spring tensions throughout and regulation the action for a precise, optimal feel.


These older series Buffet clarinets exhibit the same tonal color you'd expect from a top shelf professional clarinet, but typically have a bit less resistance than a more modern instrument. Our overhaul will leave it in perfect playing shape, and backed by our full one year mechanical warranty. Ships in an excellent hard case as pictured.
