A very good condition Buffet RC Bb clarinet in Silver plate. The Buffet RC model was launched in 1975, and named after Robert Carree, who had had a long career with Buffet Crampon, which culminated in him being chief designer. The RC places the speaker tube higher, and features a slighter wider initial polycylindrical bore than the R13. Most players find this results in a warmer, more "spread" tone, than the R13.
There is no damage to the wood, which is crack and repair free. All pieces are matching and original and stamped "Buffet". The plating overall is very good, with only slight wear, most noticeably to the C#/G# key. This Bb has matching S/N 307683, which dates to 1988. The instrument has just been completely overhauled in our workshop and is sold with our full 1 year warranty. The case is the original in good condition, and the m'piece is a Buffet C Crown professional model in ebonite, which is in excellent condition. This m'piece does tune the clarinet exceptionally well.
