I got this clarinet a few years ago and its still kickin'! When I first got it, I had a few problems--the barrel couldn't be pushed in all the way, some of the keys weren't aligned correctly, but nothing that couldn't be taken care of with a little TLC. I love the sound on this horn. The case seems a little small, so i bought a PRO TEC to go with it and it fits perfectly fine. I also got a new mouthpiece (portnoy BP02) because the one that comes with it is just a stock mouthpiece. But when you get the clarinet, if it doesn't work perfectly, don't be disappointed! Simple tweaks here and there will make your instrument truly one of a kind. In my opinion, stop looking at any other clarinet and GET THIS ONE!
The Buffet R13 is one of the best modest professional clarinets out there in the market. It provides a great, rich tone from it's grenadilla wooden body, and the sound is very nice. I've played this clarinet since a few years ago, and I'm really enjoying it. Priced pretty modestly too, this is the clarinet you're looking for once you get into the stage of more serious playing.
The best clarinet money can buy! I bought one 7 months ago, and use an M13 Profile 88 Vandoren when playing classical or 5JB Profile 88 Vandoren when playing Jazz. I also use Vandoren V.12 3 1/2 reeds. This combination produces the most easy and rich tone possible for a clarinet. If I were to choose one clarinet to use for the rest of your life, this would be it.
I am going into college and I was searching around for a really good instrument and I found that the Buffet R13 was the best. The pitch is perfect. This instrument always stays in tune and I never have trouble with the responses. The one suggestion I would say is find another mouth piece when you receive your instrument. The mouth piece is terrible it plays so flat. But the instrument is excellent!
The reason I have this clarinet is because I?m an aspiring band director. I absolutely LOVE this clarinet.
I have recently purchased this instrument as a recommendation from my music teacher, and let me just tell you, this is by far the most beautifully created instrument I've ever had the pleasure to play. The tone is breathtakingly beautiful, the craftsmanship is phenomenal and overall, it's just wonderful. If you are thinking of buying this, take my advice: It is most CERTAINLY absolutely worth it!
I received a Buffet R13 Bb going into my freshman year old highschool. My student clarinet was getting pretty old, so mom surprised me by taking the plunge and buying it for me. She went into a store and said "What's the best profesional clarinet I can get", and they ofcourse handed the R13 to her. I couldn't be any happier. The R13 produces the BEST quality of sound, works with my reed of choice (gonzalez) better than ANY clarinet on the market now, and just is all around fantastic. I can't tell you enough that if you're taking the big step for a professional clarinet, there's no competition- the R13 is THE CLARINET for everyone. You have to try it to believe it, and trust me, you won't go back!
This clarinet triumphs over many. I used to have a student model buffet (the b12) and that didnt stand up to my musical needs. but the r13 definitely does. the tone is amazing and i can produce sound easily. im using a rovner dark and b45 vandoren and the set up is really quite amazing.
I got this clarinet at the beginning of this school year for my student level clarinet didn't keep up with the music we were playing. The Buffet R-13 is amazing. It responds really well and has a very deep rich tone. The intonation is amazing. I'll tune it once at a beginning of the rehearsal and will hardly have to adjust it after wards. When you first get it the cork is a little thick, so putting together and taking it apart is difficult, but that's nothing sanding can't fix. The only real problem is that the mouth piece it comes with, quite frankly, isn't good. I recommend buying another mouthpiece along with it if getting the Buffet R-13. One of the best clarinets you can buy. You won't regret the purchase, swear.
My mother purchased me an R 13 back in 8th grade, right before i was entering high school and am still using it 10 years later. This clarinet is absolutely wonderful. Deep rich sound, and easy to play throat tones, this clarinet can do it all. The only suggestion is to buy a different mouthpiece and possibly a new barrel. I plan to use this for the rest of my life.
