This is a pristine condition, Professional model Buffet R13 Eb Clarinet. This clarinet is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct: It has been exceptionally well maintained by a careful professional owner and is offered to the market as he now concentrates on Bb clarinet. Sadly some modern Buffet R13 Eb clarinets are now made in two pieces as a cost saving exercise, shorter wood billets are cheaper! This single piece instrument was carefully selected new from Howarth & Co. some 4 years ago, but it has had hardly any use.
The wood shows no cracks or damage, it is in perfect condition throughout. The Silver plate is in excellent order with no wear. The S/N is 603431. The instrument has the original fish skin pads, which only show slight signs of use. A BG ligature is supplied and matching plastic cap, which has a couple of cracks, see photos 2 & 3. The m'piece is an up-grade to a Vandoren B40, which like the Buffet case, is in pristine condition.
