Buffet R13 A 240770
This beautiful Buffet R13 A Clarinet from 1983 has just gone through our extensive overhaul and restoration process to look and play the best it possibly can!
While most clarinets we refurbish will get our normal cleaning and repair service, this clarinet has gone through a full overhaul, which is roughly 3-4x the work! We've hand-polished the nickel keys and posts, perfected the key fitting, restored the logos, and replaced all of the pads and bumpers. We used cork pads on the upper and Valentino Masters on the lower to get the best quality seal and sound out of the instrument.
In our opinion, this clarinet is in better than new shape because of the level of care taken during the overhaul, as well as the superior materials used. We've even included a brand new Buffet double case! It plays extremely well, with a deep, resonant sound that carries. Set up your trial of this awesome clarinet if you're looking for an A, and you won't be disappointed!

Every clarinet is checked to make sure the following things are perfect:
- Pressure/Suction - No leaking pads
- Key Movement - No binding or drag
- Spring Tension - Proper tension and balance
- Ring Heights - Checked for proper evenness and height
- Pad Height Opening - Checked for proper venting (no stuffiness)
- Key Spatula Locations - Key positions checked for ergonomics
We are clarinetists with many years of performing and clarinet repair experience, so we know exactly how a great instrument should play and feel. This results in a better adjusted, easier to play, and ultimately a better sounding clarinet.
