Buffet R13? Professional Bb Clarinet #48,409



This clarinet is one of Buffet Crampon’s historic models. Created in 1955 by Robert Carrée, the R13 clarinet was a big hit in the United States and still meets with unprecedented success. Its tone is focused and rich, and it is powerful in all registers. Its flexibility lends itself to all repertoires: symphonies or chamber music, soloists, teachers, military bands, students or amateurs.  The wood and sound on the older models tends to be much nicer than many current models.


This one is in very nice condition with two barrels and the original case with a Cavallero Case Cover.  We do not do any clarinet work so you are getting this one “as is” and you can take it to your local tech to get it in top playing condition.  This one was manufactured in 1954 which was the year before the R13 was officially released so I am not sure what they would actually call this model.

No mouthpiece included, but we have a good selection of new, used and vintage in our shop.  Call or email for recommendations on mouthpieces or check out the web site.
