BUFFET E13 A CLARINET, 945

A very good condition Buffet E13 A clarinet, which would pair well with any of the more expensive Bb's in the Buffet range. This instrumemnt is a commission sale for us, as the current owner, a student at The Royal Northern College of Music, has just up-graded to a Buffet R13 A. This instrument is Buffet's semi-professional wooden model & this example has no damage or repairs to the wood, which is in pristine condition throughout. All matching pieces still carry a Buffet stamp. The instrument has been very carefully owned. The Silver plated key work is in excellent condition, with only light scratches, signs of normal use. This clarinet is sold with our full 1 year warranty. All pads have been replaced, with touch corks, and tenon corks replaced as necessary. NB The instrument was photographed prior to going through the workshop. The matching serial nos. are K119500. 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. The supplied case is an Orly, which has sen heavy use, but is still fully functional.
