Buffet, E13, B Flat Clarinet
An excellent condition Buffet E13 Bb clarinet. This instrument has just been completely overhauled by us, in finest fish skin pads, and is sold with our full 1 year warranty. The E13 clarinet is Buffet's top student wooden model. The Silver plate key work is in pristine condition, all pieces are original & have matching Buffet stamps. The Grenadilla wood is in good condition, with no cracks or repairs. The matching serial nos. are K78554, it is difficult to believe this clarinet dates to the late 1980s given the quality of the silver plate, which puts modern Buffet plating to shame. The m'piece is the original Buffet, in ebonite, which is in good condition. The Buffet tan leather case is also in good condition, and has an interior music pouch. 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 instrument was made, thankfully the Grenadilla wood was left to age naturally prior to manufacture.
