Buffet R13, E Flat Clarinet
This is an excellent condition, Buffet R13 Eb Clarinet. This clarinet is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. It was sold some 2 years ago by ourselves to a player who formerly specialised in doubling on Bass clarinet, sadly, he found the Eb clarinet was not for him. It has had hardly any use since it was completely overhauled by us. Some modern Buffet R13 Eb clarinets are now made in two pieces as a cost saving exercise, shorter wood billets are cheaper! This is in a single piece.
The wood shows no cracks or damage, it is in pristine condition. All pieces are matching and original, with correct Buffet stamps. The Silver plate is in fine order with no wear. The S/N is 595972. The instrument has "as new" fish skin pads. The m'piece is a very lightly used Vandoren B40, which again is like new. The original case is in excellent condition. It comes with a copy of Peter Hadcock's excellent book of orchestral studies.
