BUFFET E13 Bb CLARINET, 895

An immaculate condition Buffet E13 Bb clarinet, which has had only one former adult owner! It was bought new several years ago, and after many years of not being used, the current owner has just had it completely overhauled prior to sale. A copy of the invoice is included. The instrument is a commission sale. This clarinet is Buffet's top student wooden model. The Nickel Silver plate key work is pristine, all pieces are original & have matching Buffet stamps. The Grenadilla wood is perfect, with no cracks or damage. The matching serial nos. are K71631, which dates to 1988. The m'piece is an up-grade to a Vandoren 5RV professional model, which is in pristine condition. The original case is in very good condition. Current E13s are being treated by Buffet with a chemical compound, which is supposed to inhibit cracking. In fact this seems to be causing some joint problems for Buffet, with many new instrument owners reporting problems with sticking joints to dealers, due to this compound leaching out from the wood end grain. At the period this instrument was made, thankfully the Grenadilla wood was left to age naturally prior to manufacture.
