BUFFET R13 A CLARINET, 1045

A good condition Buffet R13 A clarinet. The Silver plated key work is perfect, without mark or blemish. The instrument was recently overhauled in fish skin pads, which are all in excellent condition. All pieces are matching and original with Buffet stamps. The wood shows a crack each to the upper and lower joints, in both cases to the upper portion of the joints, see photos 10 and 11. The first crack runs into the speaker key pipe, and the second from the middle tenon down to the rear thumb rest, neither runs into a tone hole, and there is no effect on the response which is excellent. Both cracks are old and stable, they have been filled and repaired in the past, we have checked them both for seal in our workshop. The matching serial nos. are F77116 which dates to 1963. The double case is of modern back pack type with a zip pocket for music and accessories, it is very good condition.
