Buffet R13 Vintage Professional Bb Clarinet  (Open Box)
Ships Internationally
Product# 462811

Based on the revered original from the '50s.

The Buffet R13 Bb Vintage Professional Clarinet has one conical 66mm barrel and one cylindrical barrel. It has been crafted by Buffet with silver-plated keys, undercut toneholes, specially treated polycylindrical bore, and a silver-plated adjustable thumb rest. Crafted in high-quality unstained grenadilla wood to ensure evenness of tone and response. This is a clarinet that is reminiscent of the original '50s R13. Buffet includes a luxurious calfskin leather pochette case with the R13 Vintage Professional Clarinet.

Most clarinetists purchasing an instrument with this level of distinction have particular preferences in terms of mouthpieces, so the Tosca Bb Clarinet is priced and shipped without one. A fine quality French-made HB ligature is included. The HB is a silver-plated metal ligature that is very easy-blowing and provides a round, centered and brilliant sound as well as a superior detaché in the upper register. 

NOTE: Buffet does not include a mouthpiece with this instrument.
