1960 Buffet R13 Bb Clarinet, Overhauled, No Cracks
1960 Buffet R13 Bb clarinet, s/n F63800. Here is a 60 year old vintage R13 which was made during the golden years of R13 production. The clarinet received an overhaul prior to sale, so all pads, felts and corks are new. The clarinet has no cracks and is in excellent condition.
The F prefix means it was made for European orchestras, which play slightly higher at A=442. This is a great thing even for many American ensembles, as many groups tune to A=442. Or if you're a seasoned wind band player, you know that most groups play around there anyway!
