Vintage Buffet pre-R13 professional clarinet
Excellent Buffet Crampon Pre-R13 Bb clarinet. This was Buffet’s highest professional clarinet prior to the emergence of the R13. Excellent condition, with little if any wear to the plating, wood cleaned, properly rehydrated and oiled over several weeks, and completely repadded. No cracks in the body, but there is an old crack in the bell which someone glued years ago, and which will never be a problem. (You can watch for a used bell to pop up on eBay if it bothers you.) Included is a vintage Medallion mouthpiece, an excellent Selmer C85 105 mouthpiece, Buffet cap with some wear, Bonade inverted ligature, swab, and an excellent hard case with gold hardware. If you are local, it also includes two tubes of cork grease and a bottle of key oil, but these cannot be shipped due to US postal regulations. Plays better than some of the 50’s R13’s we have in stock, and at hundreds less! An excellent, professional clarinet, and just in time for Christmas!
