Buffet Crampon R13A Clarinet W/ Backun & Taplin Weir Upgrades!

One of several A clarinets we are offering for sale.  This is a Buffet Crampon R13A clarinet.  S/n 312XXX makes this 1989.  It is in exceptional condition:  silver plate about 99.9% with little if any wear at all.  Note that this is silver rather than nickel—an $818 upgrade and much harder to find on the used market.  Wood is in excellent condition with just a little wear on the edge of the upper tenon which is just cosmetic in nature, but no chips, cracks, repairs or other concerns.  All new white kid leather pads installed just prior to our acquiring it, and further through our shop where it was bore oiled, adjusted, and had new tenon corks and thumb rest cork installed.  Plays exceptionally well with a big, open tone and excellent projection.  Includes a Backun prototype bell, a Backun 64EX barrel with a repaired crack that is completely invisible from the exterior, and a great Taplin-Weir 65M2L AM-style barrel specifically designed to complement French clarinets. Note that the Backun 66 barrel in the photos is NOT included; I realized it played a little flat after taking the photos, and swapped for the 64.  All in a $470 Lomax Classic HumidiPro double case with hydrometer and two D’Addario humidipaks.  A player’s horn in amazing condition—currently selling for $5,343.97, so save more than $2,300 and get one of the nicest you’ll find with some excellent upgrades!
