Very Nice Pro Buffet-Crampon R13 Bb Clarinet - Serial # 554065
Freshly Overhauled by Clarinetquest
This is a beautiful professional model Buffet-Crampon R13 series Bb clarinet, serial number 554065. The serial number dates this instrument to only about 10 years old or so, and it remains in superb condition.
The wood of this clarinet looks great, showing no past cracks or crack repairs. The nickel plated keywork shows minor finish wear from every day use, but all is intact with no previous repairs. The original 66mm barrel and bell are also in excellent shape. The clarinet was recently re-padded in our shop by Audrey Denny. The overhaul features all new pads and key materials. It was also precisely regulated and is now in perfect playing condition.
This is a fantastic clarinet for the professional musician. It plays with a clear, dark tone, easy response, and just the right amount of positive resistance to give you something to push against. It has a warm colorful sound that is inviting to the listener. Ships in its original leather covered case.
