A very fine condition Buffet, Evette and Schaeffer E13; these models were finished by hand unlike the modern E13, which is entirely machine made. We have just entirely re-padded in Pisoni Deluxe double bladder fishskin & the clarinet is sold with our full year's Clarinets Direct warranty. The matching serial nos. are K23706 which dates to 1969: A fine period of quality hand finished manufacture when the E13 was manufactured alongside the professional R13 model. The wood is in excellent order throughout, with no cracks or damage. However there is a slight graze to the outer rim of the botom joint tenon, see photo 8. This is a cosmetic issue only, it has no effect on the bore or response, and indeed, is completely hidden when the clarinet is assembled. These days E13's are made from inferior quality wood which is stained to hide imperfections. The Nickel Silver key work is excellent throughout, with no wear. The case is the original in good condition, as is the mouthpiece.
