Buffet Crampon R13 Bb Clarinet

R13 Buffet Clarinet Outfit including Accessories and Leather Case.

We think:

The historic R13 Buffet Clarinet was created back in 1955 by Robert Carrée and is still hugely popular all over the world as one of the best professional clarinets and deservedly so. Hand-crafted from carefully selected, treated and stained African blackwood (grenadilla) with silver-plated keys, R13 also features blue steel springs for ease and accuracy of key movement. All the time and craftsmanship has been taken to perfect the sound and playability of the Buffet clarinet that will not let you down. The tone of this clarinet is outstanding, producing a rich, concentrated sound that is extremely powerful throughout all registers. The R13 Buffet Clarinet is very flexible in terms of style and is perfect for any driven clarinettist whether they wish to perform as soloists, within a military band, orchestra, jazz band or any other performance setting or style of music. It is suitable for teachers and students alike.

Buffet Crampon have been specialising in manufacturing some of the industry’s finest woodwinds since 1825 and it really shows in all instruments from their student clarinets such as B12 up to the world-renowned R13 and RC professional clarinets. The R13 Clarinet is enjoyed worldwide by accomplished clarinettists including Paolo Beltramini, a solo clarinettist of the Orchestra Della Svizzera Italiana, Stanley Drucker and Mark Nuccio, members of New York Philharmonic Orchestra and many more.
