Good Original Condition w/ Fresh Adjustment

This is a mid-1990's vintage Buffet R13 series Bb clarinet, serial number 398047. This clarinet has been well maintained and properly cared for, and is an excellent choice for advancing players looking for their first R13.

 

This instrument features a grenadilla wood body with nickel plated keys. It comes complete with original barrel and bell, and ships in a hard case. The keywork is all in excellent condition with little finish wear. There is just one previous repair to the body, a single crack in the lower joint which was professionally repaired (pinned). There are no other previous damages or repairs to the instrument. Pads have been well maintained over the years, but the clarinet will still get a fresh cleaning and adjustment from our repair shop before shipping, where we will replace any pads that are starting to age.

 

I found this clarinet to play with a strong focus, yet without a lot of resistance. It seems to be a fairly free blowing example and yet still allows for a centered core. A nice clarinet for advancing students and professionals alike.
