When the American investor Martin Tolchin bought Buffet Crampon company he felt that though the R13 sold well in the USA different models would be more successful in Europe. The S1, Continentale and BC20, which evolved into the RC, were all attempts to make darker, more focused sounding clarinets. This is a BC 20 Bb serial no. F153373 dating to 1975, and is in excellent condition. The wood is very good throughout with no cracks, damage or repairs. There is no wear to the Nickel Silver plating, which is pristine. The key regulation is tight and there is no joint wobble. The instrument has had a complete overhaul & re-pad in Pisoni Premium Deluxe fish skin pads and is sold with a full years' Clarinets Direct warranty. The m'piece is an ebonite Buffet C in good condition. as is the case. .
