Product ID: 466503BuffetR13Clarinet
This is a pristine condition, lightly used Buffet-Crampon Paris R13 model Bb clarinet, serial number 466503. This instrument has been well cared for and is currently being fully repadded in our repair shop. It will ship in perfect playing condition and backed with our full year mechanical warranty.
This clarinet shows no history of past damages or repairs. There are no cracks in the two body joints or barrel, and just one tiny crack near the bottom of the bell, purely cosmetic that does not affect play. The nickel plated keywork shows minimal wear. Pads are just starting to look a little old, so the instrument is in line in our repair shop for a full overhaul. Audrey Denny will replace all the pads as well as all the timing corks and felts, and put the clarinet in perfect adjustment.
This is a fine professional clarinet. It plays with a strong focus and excellent control. While on the warmer side, I wouldn't characterize it as an overly dark instrument, and seems well primed for play in both concert band and the jazz setting. A great, versatile instrument. Ships in its original case with original 66mm barrel.
