Buffet R13 Prestige Bb Clarinet #681xxx (ON APPROVAL)
A fantastic Buffet R13 Prestige for about half the price of a new one! This is another instrument we accepted as trade-in from a professional clarinetist that recently purchased a new one from us. All pads were replaced with Gore-tex pads within the last couple of months by another reputable shop and it seals and plays better than new from the factory. We serviced the instrument, including cleaning and buffing, key polishing, 2 new pads as a personal set-up preference, and some regulation. It is set-up and ready to perform out of the box!
This instrument comes with a Buffet Chadash barrel, which adds focus and depth to the sound, along with helping the intonation. The original stock barrel is not included. Purchase this instrument and you will also receive 1 free barrel of your choice from our website selection. Simply include your choice in the notes when you order and a little bit about your preferred sound and feel characteristics. Brian will match this barrel before shipping.
I find this clarinet to have a nice working resistance, even scale, and a great balance of high and lows in the sound that can be easily modified with your preferred barrel.
Other than the stock barrel, this instrument has never cracked and has been regularly serviced.
