BUFFET E13 Bb CLARINET, 795

An excellent condition Buffet E13 Bb clarinet, which has just been taken in part exchange by ourselves. The sole former owner is an adult amateur player, and she has up-graded the thumb rest to a fully adjustable model with sling hook. 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 perfect condition. This clarinet has fish skin pads throughout in very fine condition, they will be good for many months to come. The matching serial nos. are K151420. The m'piece is again an upgrade to a Vandoren B45 professional model, which again is in good used 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.
