A Buffet R13, which dates to 1985, which has the original design placement of the speaker key, which is often much preferred by professional players. The Silver plated key work is in good order throughout, with slight wear mainly to the ring finger touchpieces, and tarnish commensurate with the age of the clarinet. Most opf the plating wear is actually to the tenon rings, see photos 4, 8, and 9. The wood is in good condition with no cracks or damage, only slight surface marks. The instrument has just had a complete re-pad in Pisoni deluxe tan leather pads and it is sold with our full 1 year warranty. This clarinet demonstrates the classic qualities of an R13; a lovely sweet sound and excellent intonation, and is made with unstained, matched Grenadilla wood. The serial number on the instrument is 268082, which dates to 1985. There is no serial number on the upper joint, as Buffet do not stamp replacement joints with serial numbers. The supplied mouthpiece is an upgrade to a Selmer in good condition. The case is a Buffet brown leather pouchette type with key, it is in good condition.
