An excellent condition Buffet R13 A clarinet in Silver plate, which is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct. This A has matching serial nos. 252389, which dates to 1984. This was just at the point where Boosey & Hawkes had taken over Buffet, and were about to insist on a large increase in production, and consequent loss of quality. The Silver plating is very good throughout, without any wear or tarnish. Indeed the quality of this plating contrasts sharply with contemporary standards of Buffet plating. The clarinet has just been re-padded in tan leather, all pads are new. The key regulation is tight, there is no joint wobble.  This R13 A clarinet plays with a sweet sound and excellent evenness and intonation. The m'piece is a used Selmer C85 115, and the case is a brand new BAM.
