Vintage Buffet Crampon R13 Clarinet W/ Valentino Masters Overhaul

Vintage Buffet Crampon R13 Clarinet W/ Valentino Masters Overhaul

One of several professional clarinets we are offering for sale. This is a Buffet Crampon R13 Bb clarinet in nickel plate.  S/n 176XXX makes it 1977—right toward the end of Buffet’s Golden Era.  It is in exceptional condition.  Wood is an exceptional piece of aged grenadilla with a tight, straight grain and no chips, cracks, pins, or repairs.  Tenons are square with no wobble between joints.  Plating has that light “nickel haze” but is about 99.5% intact with little if any wear at all.  Just completely repadded with Vandoren Masters Series synthetic pads—one of the longest-lasting and quietest pads available.  Plays delightfully from head to toe with a full, dark tone and an open feel.  Cork grease is for local pickup only and will not be shipped, but it does include a new ProTec microfiber cloth, swab, a Leblanc Cadenze mouthpiece, a D. Bonade inverted ligature in black nickel, and a mouthpiece cap.  All in the Buffet Anniversary Edition case with moderate wear.  A true player’s instrument from one of the most sought-after periods ever and in the best condition you could hope to find, and at more than $2,000 less than brand new!
