Designed in the Style of the 50's R-13 Clarinet - Model # BC1131LV

Buffet Crampon R-13 professional clarinets are the world's gold standard for professional and advanced student clarinetists. Using premium African black wood, R-13 clarinets produce a dark, centered tone with excellent projection. Featuring even response, intonation, superior tone quality and durability, Buffet Crampon professional clarinets are the best option for advanced high school and college band students through the finest professional clarinetists in the world.

The Vintage series was designed in 1996 by René Lesieux, master craftsman and responsible for instrument research and development at Buffet Crampon for over 40 years. Buffet wanted to satisfy those musicians who wished to find the same features and sound they had with their 1950's R13 clarinet. Since its introduction the Vintage has charmed many clarinetists over the world. They choose the Vintage for its fluid, focused tone, its homogeneity in all registers, and its easy response.
