MATCHED PAIR OF BUFFET CRAMPON E13 CLARINETS, 1695

An excellent pair of Buffet E13 clarinets 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 of the Bb clarinet.  Both instruments have had a complete re-pad in Pisoni Premium Deluxe pads and are sold with a full years' warranty. The Bb has S/N K73504, the A S/N K74218, which dates to 1989.  All pieces are original and stamped Buffet. The mouthpiece is a standard Buffet in excellent condition. The case is again an original Buffet in brown leather, it is in good condition, and comes with both keys. 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 these instruments were made, thankfully the Grenadilla wood was left to age naturally prior to manufacture.
