BUFFET CRAMPON E13 Bb CLARINET, 845

An excellent Buffet E13 clarinet in Nickel silver plate. There is no damage to the wood, which is crack and repair free. The plating overall is in fine condition with only slight loss to the RH ring keys.  The instrument has just had a complete re-pad in Pisoni Premium Deluxe pads and is sold with our full years' warranty. The Bb has matching S/N K73504, which dates to 1989.  All pieces are original and stamped Buffet. The mouthpiece is a standard Buffet in excellent condition. The case is a brand new "Kinsman". 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.
