Buffet Crampon

A colorful clarinet fashioned after the famed R13s of the 1950s.

The Buffet Vintage R13 A Clarinet produces a pure, focused sound that is unmistakably Buffet. Many elements were utilized on the Vintage that are not found on the modern R13. Several tone hole placements have been adjusted to improve tuning, and the bell is 1mm longer producing a very fluid clarion register. Features include full grenadilla wood body, silver-plated keys, adjustable thumb rest, and two barrels (one cylindrical, one reverse taper). Musicians of all kinds will love the Buffet R13 Vintage as it is extremely flexible, centers easily and projects well in almost any hall.

In 1996, during a tour of the US and Canada, Rene Lesieux, Buffet's Research and Development Manager, fielded many requests from players who wanted a clarinet with the same feel and sound quality of the 1950's R13s. The result is a clarinet that has a great scale, a fluid sound and better response and sound emission.

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. NOTE: Buffet does not include a mouthpiece with this instrument
