Product Description

This is a an early 60s vintage Buffet Paris R13 model clarinet in Bb, serial number 72763. This clarinet has been professionally played and maintained for much of its life and remains in excellent physical condition. It plays with a sweet, strong sound with a lot of depth and color, and makes for an excellent option for players looking for a top shelf pro model R13 on a budget.

 

This clarinet shows no previous cracks or repairs to the grenadilla wood body. The nickel silver keywork is a bit scuffed from time and age, but will do our best to clean it up before shipping. A newer more comfortable thumbrest has been added at some point in its life, but all the rest of the keywork is original, as is the original 65mm barrel and bell.

 

This clarinet came to us on older pads, and is currently in our repair shop in line for a full cleaning, oiling, and repad. Our top clarinet tech, Audrey Denny, will repad the instrument and replace all material, while adjusting spring tensions and key heights throughout for an even feel and response.

 

This instrument is already playing up a storm on the older pads, I can't wait to see it at its full potential! This is a fantastic player for a great price, don't miss out. Ships in its original case.
