BUFFET RC Bb CLARINET, 1245

A good condition Buffet RC clarinet in Bb which features a LH Ab/Eb lever usually only seen on the Prestige model. When the American investor Martin Tolchin bought Buffet Crampon he felt that though the R13 sold well in the USA, different models would be more successful in Europe. The S1, Continentale and BC20, which became the RC, were all attempts to make darker, more focused sounding clarinets.
This Bb has no cracks or damage to the wood, which is all in fine condition, with only the usual surface marks consistent with careful use. The Silver plating of the keys is all in excellent order, what wear there is, is to the pillars, not the actual key work . We have just entirely re-padded the instrument in finest Pisoni Deluxe fish skin pads, and the clarinet is sold with our full warranty. The matching serial nos. are F366430, which dates to 1992. The mouthpiece is a stock Buffet in excellent condition. The original Buffet case is also in good used condition.
