Buffet R13 Bb Nickel Plated - #361xxx (SOLD)
*SET UP AND READY TO PERFORM*
This R13 Bb nickel plated clarinet has no crack history, excellent wood quality, very even scale, and surprisingly good intonation. Plating in excellent condition with obvious wear on the Ab key, small spots on the left hand rings and thumb (see pictures). A really phenomenal instrument from the late 80s, it outplays many of the new clarinets of similar models we have in the shop. Great working resistance on this instrument even with the stock barrel, with good core and flexibility.
Another reputable shop recently repadded the instrument with new Valentino and leather pads, all new tenon corks. We made some small adjustments, changed a couple pads, polished the keywork and body.
We can add a left hand Ab/Eb lever for an additional $225, and the thumb rest can easily be changed out with a very affordable adjustable rest later if you decide and only requires removing and reinstalling the screws.
