A very fine Buffet R13 A clarinet. This instrument has an interesting provenance. It was bought new by Julian Farrell, and carefully selected from many examples. Julian was for many years a member of the English Chamber Orchestra and Clarinet Professor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. This instrument was lent out by Julian Farrell to a student of his at the GSMD. As a "thank you" to him for the loan, she has just had it fully overhauled on returning it.
This instrument has had extremely careful use, the Silver plated key work is very good order throughout, with only minor wear to the ring fingers, mainly in the RH. The wood is in excellent condition, without cracks or damage. The instrument has just been padded in fish skin pads. The clarinet will be maintenance free for many months to come. All pieces are matching and original with Buffet stamps. The supplied barrel is a R13 A Buffet of 65mm. The matching serial nos. are 283356 which dates to 1986. The supplied double case is an Orly in used condition, there are some interior stains, but it still zips up securely.
