Buffet R13 B-Flat 278996
Up for sale is a really nice R13 B-flat from approximately 1986 in fantastic shape! We’ve done our full cleaning, oiling, and servicing where we replaced a number of pads and key bumpers.
We also regulated the spring tensions, adjusted the ring heights, and got the instrument to play better than it ever has!
This clarinet is priced a little lower than some of the newer refurbished R13s we have on-hand because of its age, but it shows good indications that it hasn't been played much. So it has many, many years of life left in it. The plating and general cosmetics are in fantastic shape, and we can't wait for you to try it!

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.
