BUFFET E13 Bb CLARINET, 895

An extremely fine E13 clarinet in Silver plate. The matching serial numbers are K110090 and all pieces are original with Buffet stamps, apart from the m'piece. There is no damage to the wood, which is crack and repair free. The plating overall is pristine.  The instrument has just had a complete re-pad in Pisoni deluxe fish skin pads by Dave Kershook, and the instrument is sold with our full 1 year warranty. The case is the original which is in very good condition, and comes with the keys. 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 instruments was made, thankfully the Grenadilla wood was left to age naturally prior to manufacture.
