This clarinet is absolutely AMAZING! This clarinet has helped me advance further than I could have ever expected in the past 8 months. It has a very warm dark tone, great in the low range, and confident in the altissimo register. The craftsmanship on this clarinet lacks nothing. The shape of each key hugs every one of your fingers and makes playing effortless. I'm not going to need a new clarinet anytime soon and neither will you if you get the R13. I recommend this clarinet to any and every serious clarinet player.
The R-13 is by far the best clarinet I've ever played on. One of the very first times I performed on it, there was an immediate difference in my sound. The R-13 produces a beautiful sound with the help of a good mouthpiece, ligature, and reed (which is highly recommended). The R-13 has a good response to slow pieces and fast pieces. When the R-13 is played, it projects a rounded, full sound, and it produces a dark, yet charming sound that is pleasant to the ear. I encourage serious high school, college, and professional clarinetists to invest in this instrument.
This clarinet is very good, way ahead of its time some would say. I absolutely love playing it. It's by far the best clarinet I've played on in years; I even consider it higher in quality than my Leblanc Concerto. The only drawback I would say this instrument has is that you cannot take it outside. The grenadilla wood is very sensitive to cracking under ever-changing weather conditions/atmosphere temperatures. However, I would suggest to any student who intends on becoming a serious professional musician to take into very high consideration purchasing the R13, as long as they intend to stay indoors. =)
I've had this instrument for six months, and I love it! The silver keys last longer than nickel ones, and I think they feel smoother, too. It has an easy transition from the chalumeau to the clarion and on up through the altissimo. The tone is wonderfully rich and full, even in the lowest notes, and the highest notes don't thin as much as on some other clarinets I've used. The tuning is accurate and the keys simply flow. This instrument is the best I've ever played and I don't think many others could even begin to compare!
What a change from E11! No wonder Buffet is the legendary choice of professionals. Fluid response and colorful sound are just the two best features of this instrument. Silver keys look pretty sweet too - it really boosts my confidence.
