Buffet Pre-R13 Professional Bb Clarinet #48,409



This clarinet is one of Buffet Crampon’s historic Pre-R13 models. Made in 1954 (right before the R13) #48,409.


This one has decent pads 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. 

One of the barrels is cracked as is the bell.  Both would need to be replaced.  Keys are tarnished and it needs tenon corks.  This is a project horn for a good tech.

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.  

Shipping cost is extra and dependent on destination.
