Legacy of the R13

Originally designed in 1955 by the reputable Robert Carree, this clarinet became a huge hit in the USA before becoming a favourite among many professional clarinettists and experienced amateur musicians. What leads musicians to this instrument is its focused and rich tone combined with its ability to play throughout all registers sweetly. It is also extremely versatile, meaning it can be played in a number of genres: from orchestras to military bands to jazz.

Professional Body

The Buffet R13 uses the Grenadilla wood that is found from African Blackwood. This is then treated and stained to produce a body that has a fantastic tone and projection, but also has durability. The Poly-cylindrical bore of this clarinet has been manufactured to the Buffet Crampon method, which included many years of expertise and knowledge.

Top Quality Mechanisms

With a Buffet R13 Clarinet, you are purchasing some of the best designed and manufactured clarinets on the market. The stainless steel rods and pivot screws are silver plated to provide strength, durability and a great stylish look. The silver keywork has been power forged and plated in copper and then silver plating. This gives a smoother finish and a longer lasting set of materials. The superior quality double fish skin pads meet undercut tone holes to create a fantastic seal and a sound that is full of tone.

Everything You Need

This clarinet comes with an abundance of accessories that you need to get going. Firstly, the instrument comes with a case, which makes transporting the clarinet to concerts and rehearsals very easy. It also includes a Buffet ligature and reed.
