A very good condition Buffet R13 Full Boehm clarinet, in Silver plate. This instrument features; fork Eb/Bb, LH Ab/Eb, articulated C#/G# & and range to low Eb.  Therefore superior to current Prestige specification. This clarinet could be purchased as an alternative to buying a pair, as A clarinet parts can be successfully negotiated with the extra mechanism and the ability to transpose. There is no damage to the wood, which is in fine condition.  The Silver plate key work is very good throughout, with only slight wear to the ring fingers, and thumb bush. Indeed the fine quality of this Silver plate contrasts sharply with that found on more modern Buffet clarinets. The instrument has just had a complete overhaul in our workshop and is sold with our full 1 year warranty.   The matching serial nos. are F180703 which dates to 1977. This was an excellent period of Buffet manufacture, commonly referred to as Buffet's "Golden Era". The mouthpiece is a used Vandoren B44. The case is the original Buffet in back leather, it shows some stains to the interior, which also has small tears, and exterior scuffs, but is fully serviceable.
