Buffet R13 Bb Nickel Clarinet (SN 500xxx
A fantastic deal on this used R13 nickel-plated clarinet, complete with a professional overhaul that features beveled cork pads on the upper joint and Valentino synthetic pads on the lower joint. A new tenon sleeve was also added for the most perfect, wobble-free fit.
Ready to perform on stage immediately, this instrument is very even and consistent with excellent intonation and working resistance. Although we would recommend upgrading to a Corbin Traditional barrel to add a little "ring" to the sound, the instrument with all stock parts plays better than many new instruments well over twice the price.
Previous upper joint crack was professionally repaired early on with pins that are hardly noticeable and does not affect the playability of the instrument at all.
Some wear on nickel plating in the common places (touch-pieces) as shown in pictures.
