Vintage Buffet Crampon R13 Clarinet--Valentino Master's Overhaul!

Vintage Buffet Crampon R13 Clarinet--Valentino Master's Overhaul!

One of several Buffet Crampon clarinets we are offering for sale. This is a vintage R13 in Bb. S/n 186XXX puts it at 1978, right at the end of Buffet’s Golden Era.  It is in exceptional condition:  tight, straight grain with no chips, cracks or repairs, nickel plating about 99% with little if any wear at all.  Tenons are square with no wobble. Serial numbers match.  Just through the shop where it was disassembled, cleaned, bore oiled, polished, had all new tenon corks installed, and was repadded with Valentino Master’s Series synthetic pads—probably the quietest and longest lasting pad available. A bigger, fuller, darker tone than many of our other R13’s, with excellent intonation and even response across all registers.  Key oil and cork grease are for local pickup only and will not be shipped, but it does include a new ProTec microfiber cloth, new SuperSlick chamois swab, Vandoren 5RV Lyre mouthpiece, Buffet cap, and a hard-to-find Vandoren ultralight Masters ligature.  All in a brand new Kaces case, which may be available in other colors on request—or we may be able to upgrade you to a Buffet or other case as well.  One of the nicest R13’s you’ll find in the nicest condition imaginable from one of the most sought-after periods ever, and at more than $2,000 less than brand new!
