Product Description
This is an early 1980s vintage Buffet Paris R13 series clarinet in Bb, serial number 244064. This clarinet is a wonderful instrument for the advancing player looking to pick up their first R13 on a budget. It has just received a full professional overhaul in our repair shop with all new pads and material, and is ready for a long time to come.
This clarinet was previously owned by a professional player on the East Coast, who took great care of it. Physically, this grenadilla wood R13 is in good overall condition. There was previously one crack in the upper joint, which was professionally repaired and sealed with 4 pins. The thumb-rest has been moved slightly lower, as seen in the photos, and a ring added for a neck-strap if so desired. There is mild finish wear on a couple touchpoints, but overall very straight. The clarinet comes complete with its original 66mm barrel, as well as an aftermarket Buffet Moennig barrel, measuring 67mm. It also has an original, unused Buffet mouthpiece with silver ligature and cap.
Our overhaul included all new pads throughout, new material, and a precise key adjustment. We regulated the action and spring tensions for optimal feel and response, and have everything in tip-top shape. All work was done in our shop by our top clarinet tech, Audrey Denny. If you've been looking for an R13 for a student, this is the bargain of the day.
