A very good condition Buffet E13 clarinet in Nickel Silver plate. The E13 is the top selling student wooden clarinet worldwide. The matching serial numbers are K75679, which dates to the late 1980s, and all pieces are original with Buffet stamps. There is no damage to the wood, which is crack and repair free. The plating shows only slight wear, mainly to a couple of the ring fingers, it is in fine shape throughout. The instrument has just had a complete re-pad in Pisoni deluxe fish skin pads, and is sold with our full 1 year warranty. The case is a brand new modern example, with pouches and carry strap. The m'piece is the original Buffet in good condition. The wood for current E13s is 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.
