When the American investor Martin Tolchin bought Buffet Crampon in the mid 1970's he felt that though the R13 sold well in the USA different models would be more successful in Europe. T he 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. F262347 dating to 1984, and is in very fine condition. The wood is excellent throughout with no cracks, damage or repairs. There is a no wear to the Silver plating, which is in pristine order. 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 brand new Buffet still in the wrap. The case is an older pouchette leather Selmer example, with key.
