BUFFET MASTER MODEL ME13 Bb CLARINET, 745

A very fine condition vintage Buffet Master Model E13. The Nickel Silver key work is excellent throughout, with only slight wear to the ring keys. We have just entirely re-padded in double bladder fishskin & the clarinet is sold with our full year's Clarinets Direct warranty. The matching serial nos. are D29581 which dates to the late 1970's. Back then the E13 range was tested at the Buffet factory, with the finest instruments then undergoing further hand tuning and undercutting to improve the response. Therefore the customer had an instrument which was almost identical to an R13 on quality, but at less cost. There are no cracks or damage to the wood which is in excellent order throughout. These days E13's are made from inferior quality wood which is stained to hide imperfections. The case is the original in good condition, and the m'piece is a professional Vandoren B46.
