Superb condition wood Buffet Paris R13 series Bb clarinet, serial number 241894. This clarinet shows no previous cracks or repairs and is in fantastic shape.


The grenadilla wood body on both upper and lower joints is excellent, with no cracks or chips. The tenons remain in great shape, and both original bell and barrel are included. The nickel silver keywork shows minimal finish wear, and while it is a bit cloudy (very commonly seen on vintage clarinets), that is purely cosmetic. This instrument came to us on old pads well past their life cycle, and as such it just received a fresh repad by our top clarinet tech, Audrey Denny. She cleaned and oiled the clarinet, and replaced all pads and key adjustment material, finely regulating the instrument top to bottom for a precise and fluid feel.


This Buffet plays with a lot of the warmth and presence you'd expect of this instrument. Stay tuned for a play-test video.
