BUFFET E13 Bb CLARINET, 845

A near mint condition Buffet E13 Bb clarinet, which is a commission sale. The instrument has had just one owner, he bought the clarinet 3 years ago, prior to reading Music at York University. The instrument has been very well cared for. The pads were recently all replaced, with special durable felt pads, the work was done in New Zealand. This clarinet is Buffet's top student wooden model. The Silver plate key work is pristine, all pieces are original & have matching Buffet stamps. The Grenadilla wood is in very good condition, with no cracks or damage. The matching serial nos. are K181014. The m'piece is the original Buffet, which is as new, the original owner up-graded his m'piece to a professional model. 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.
