The Pro's Choice

The Buffet R13 Bb Professional Clarinet is the legendary choice of professionals. Key of Bb. With .577" bore; 66mm barrel; premium-quality grenadilla wood; 17-key, 6-ring nickel-plated keys; polycylindrical bore; undercut toneholes; and adjustable thumb rest. Includes deluxe naugahyde-covered wood shell case with plush interior.

The Buffet R13 clarinet has a 40-year history of quality and craftsmanship. From the wind ensembles to the great symphony orchestras, it is the benchmark in clarinet manufacturing. Crafted in high-quality grenadilla wood to ensure evenness of tone and response. The R13's 3-step polycyndrical bore is noted for its dark, full sound.

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

A MUST-GET!!!

By 

from san antonio, texas

Comments about Buffet Crampon R13 Professional Bb Clarinet with Nickel Plated Keys:

This R13 clarinet is something everyone should buy if they want to become a good clarinet player. Right now, I am playing the clarinet in 1st band in high school and my sound has improved greatly. This clarinet will help improve your sound and make it easier for anyone to play in all registers on the clarinet. It is perfect for region auditions, all-state, and solo and ensemble. This clarinet will make you sound more professional and with hard work, it won't limit you to what you can do on the clarinet.

Phenomenal Clarinet!

By 

from Southern California

Comments about Buffet Crampon R13 Professional Bb Clarinet with Nickel Plated Keys:

This is the best professional clarinet on the market today. It is perfect from the look and feel of the wood to the tone and intonation that can be found. I have owned this clarinet for two months, and after it broke in, everyone noticed the difference in my sound. Whether you are a high school musician or a professional musician, there is a great chance that this clarinet is for you.

Excellent!

By 

from West Virginia University

Comments about Buffet Crampon R13 Professional Bb Clarinet with Nickel Plated Keys:

The Buffet R13 is the best instrument a musician can get. There's no need to pay the big bucks for the Prestige or Festival because the basic R13 is the number one. Not all wood clarinets are the same, though. If you can have a professional musicians who really knows clarinets try them out for you, DO IT! You can't go wrong with an R13 though. P.S. Check for cracks before you buy! And don't let your wood clarinets get cold! They'll crack!

Fantastic Clarinet!!!!!!!!!

Comments about Buffet Crampon R13 Professional Bb Clarinet with Nickel Plated Keys:

The reason why I say this clarinet is fantastic because it is just that. The R-13 is so even in all registers which I why I play on an R-13. The tuning of this instrument is wonderful barley have to pull out either in the barrel or middle of the clarinet. This clarinet I recommend to the serious student and all clarinetists who are looking for a clarinet that will last them for the rest of their lives. Just wonderful.
