Vintage 1962 Buffet R13 Clarinet W/ Cork Overhaul

Vintage 1962 Buffet R13 Clarinet W/ Cork Overhaul

SKU: 0

One of several Buffet Crampon clarinets we are offering for sale.  This one is a vintage R13 in Bb.  S/n 752XX makes it 1962.  It is in very good condition:  wood has no chips or cracks, though the middle tenon has been sleeved likely because it was worn and wobbling a bit.  Nickel plate about 95% with some wear mostly on the rings, but still polishes up to bright-and-shiny as seen in the photos.  Just disassembled, cleaned, bore oiled, and had all new pads installed—Ferree’s B17 de’Jur double-bladder, pressed felt on the lower, and Ferree’s premium cork on the upper—and all new tenon corks.  A darker and fuller clarinet compared to many modern R13’s.  Includes lots of extras:  Buffet one-up, three-down mouthpiece (likely a Chedeville blank) in a C-crown facing, Brilhart Ebolin 3* mouthpiece, Luyben ligature, swab, and four Vandoren 2.5 reeds.  Cork grease and key oil are for local pickup only and cannot be shipped.  All in a compact BAM X.light case which alone sold for $228 when it was available.  A great clarinet from a sought-after vintage, and hard to find in this condition!
