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. F98037 dating to 1967, and is in very fine condition. The wood is excellent throughout with no cracks, damage or repairs. There is only very slight wear to the Nickel Silver plating, on the low F/C touchpiece, and RH rings. 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 a used Vandoren 5RV in good condition. The used case is in good condition. .
