Buffet, E13, B Flat Clarinet
An excellent condition E13 clarinet in silver plate. The matching serial numbers are K144959 which dates to the 2000s. There is no damage to the wood, which is crack and repair free. The plating overall is in very good condition, with no wear. The instrument has just had a complete re-pad in fish skin pads & is sold with our 1 year warranty. The case is a Buffet plush lined example in excellent condition, with music carry compartment and still wrapped keys. The m'piece is a Buffet stock example, in excellent condition, all pieces are matching and original. Current E13s are being treated by Buffet with a chemical compound, which is supposed to inhibit cracking. In fact this seems to be causing some joint problems for Buffet, with many new instrument owners reporting problems with sticking joints to dealers, due to this compound leaching out from the wood end grain. At the period this instruments was made, thankfully the Grenadilla wood was left to age naturally prior to manufacture.
