Buffet R13 Bb - Silver Keys
This is a very nice Buffet Crampon R13 Bb clarinet with silver key work, serial number 569900. The body of the clarinet is in outstanding shape with just one previous crack repair, which has been professionally pinned. All of the tone holes are in perfect condition as are the body joints. There was previously a repair to the top left hand trill key tone hole, which was expertly done. The 650 barrel and bell are also in great shape. This clarinet was professionally played and maintained by the previous owner. It was more recently set-up in another shop and plays great. The set-up features cork pads in the top joint and white leather pads in the bottom joint. This clarinet will also be checked out in our shop before it ships to ensure it arrives in perfect playing condition. 
This R13 has a beautiful sound. The instrument blows freely but maintains in control of the tone, which gives this instrument a good feeling when playing. This clarinet sings in the upper register into the altissimo and has the characteristic buzz of the R13 in the chalumeau register. The altissimo is easy to control and with the lower level of resistance, it can clearly articulate and maintain good sound. Throughout the registers of the instrument these qualities stay consistent. Overall this horn has a great feel especially for a lower level of resistance instrument. It ships in perfect playing condition with the original Buffet clarinet case.
