An excellent condition Buffet E13 Bb clarinet, which has just been fully overhauled by Clarinets direct and is sold with our full 1 year warranty. The pads are all brand new finest Pisoni fish skin, and the instrument has been stripped down, oiled, and regulated. 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, apart from one minor chip to the outer edge of the top tenon of the upper joint, see photo 10. This has absolutely no effect on the response, as this section of the wood does not form the bore. The matching serial nos. are K168367. The m'piece an upgrade to a Woodwind Larry Coombs LC3 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.
