Golden Era Buffet Crampon R13 Bb Clarinet!

Golden Era Buffet Crampon R13 Bb Clarinet!

One of several Buffet Crampon clarinets we are offering for sale. This is an R13 Bb in nickel.  S/n 1138XX puts it at 1970, a desirable vintage right in the middle of Buffet’s Golden Era.  It is in excellent condition:  wood is a heavy, tight billet of grenadilla with no chips, cracks or repairs, and square tenons with no wobble between joints.  Plating about 99% with little if any wear at all.  Just through the shop where it was cleaned, bore oiled, polished, and had all new Ferree’s B17 de’Jur double-bladder, pressed-felt pads installed.  Plays as you would expect from a 70’s Buffet, with a big, warm sound, open feel and excellent projection.  Includes a vintage Selmer hard rubber mouthpiece in an HS* facing, cap, ligature, three Selmer Soloist #3 reeds, and a metal 4-space Reedgard.  All in the period pouchette case with the leather wrap missing from the metal handle, but otherwise in good condition with an additional zippered case cover.  A great clarinet from one of the most sought-after periods, and at more than $2,000 less than new!
