HELP, I Want One!

This is a fine, lightly used Buffet Paris R13 Bb Clarinet, serial number 481804. This instrument has been lovingly well cared for and is in outstanding shape. It has newer pads and a fresh adjustment, and is perfect for the advancing player looking for their first R13 on a budget.


This clarinet is in exquisite shape. It shows absolutely no history of cracks or repairs, and is solid from top to bottom. The grenadilla wood is strong and in fantastic condition. The instruments comes with its original 66mm barrel and bell, and the silver plated keywork shows no real finish wear. A beautiful instrument physically and sonically.


This R13 plays with a rich, focused tone, with a lot of color. It takes your air well and plays with the perfect amount of resistance, giving the player something to push against. A very vibrant instrument in all registers, and it plays evenly over the break.
