Buffet R13 Bb clarinet in Silver plate, which is a commission sale for

This clarinet has an super pads by Eddie Ashton throughout in excellent condition.
The Bb has matching serial nos. 535796, which dates to the early 2000's.
All pieces are matching and original, and stamped "Buffet".
The Silver plating
overall is in good condition, with some slight wear mainly to the finger rings, and rear thumb bush.
There is a repaired crack to the upper joint, see photo, 4. This runs down towards
the speaker tube, and the crack has been filled and glued.
It has been stable through many years of professional use,
and, as the speaker tube is metal lined, this has
no effect whatsoever on the response.
The supplied Buffet case is in good condition.
