Buffet Crampon R13A Clarinet W/ Leather & Cork Overhaul!
One of several professional clarinets we are offering for sale. This is a Buffet Crampon R13A clarinet in exceptional condition. Grenadilla body in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs; nickel plating about 99.5% with very minor scratches but almost no wear at all. The original thumb rest has been professionally upgraded to an adjustable thumb rest including a neck strap hook. Just through the shop in October 2023 where it was bore oiled and had all new pads installed in a combination of white kid leather and premium cork. Plays delightfully across all registers with an open feel and warm, round tone. Intonation is spot on even in the usual trouble spots, likely because of the included Moennig reverse-taper 1231 670 mm barrel. Comes in an excellent ProTec double case with shoulder strap and a zippered external pocket. If you already have a case or prefer a different case, please reach out to us for other case options. Note that this clarinet is in the key of A—if you are purchasing for a student or someone needing the more common Bb clarinet, then please see our dozens of other professional Bb clarinets. Sells new at WWBW for $4,822. The perfect Christmas present for your advanced orchestral student, and at more than $2,000 less than new!
