Overview

French system, key of A. The legendary choice of professionals; .5765" bore; 65mm barrel; premium-quality grenadilla wood; 17-key, 6-ring nickel-plated keys; polycylindrical bore; undercut toneholes; adjustable thumb rest. Includes deluxe naugahyde-covered wood shell case with plush interior.

The Buffet R-13 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 with rich and focused sound, power in all registers, and great flexibility. Crafted in high-quality grenadilla wood to ensure evenness of tone and response.

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.

Awesome

By Christian Anderson

from Edmonds wa

Comments about Buffet Crampon R13 Professional A Clarinet with Nickel Keys:

I got this A clarinet after 3 years on a r-13 Bb and i can honestly say that this clarinet has just as good if not a better tone than anyother clarinet I have ever played. It plays the high notes well in tune, and you can get a really nice deep sound in the lower register. I strongly reccoment this clarinet.

Great tone

By Susan Hungerford

from Los Angelas, area

Comments about Buffet Crampon R13 Professional A Clarinet with Nickel Keys:

My R-13 Bb/A clarinets are great instruments. Not new, to say the least, but still terrific, and still have the gorgeous tone I went for back in the late 70's!!

This is the one

Comments about Buffet Crampon R13 Professional A Clarinet with Nickel Keys:

This Fall we decided it was time to upgrade clarinet. Mom called the band director and he basically said "buy this one". Come to Music123 website and it basically said "buy this one".You can spend more money for sure, but "this one" has a wonderful sound and is gorgeous.

wonderful horn

By Bill Blackwelder-433Nh

from Sumter, SC

Comments about Buffet Crampon R13 Professional A Clarinet with Nickel Keys:

As we all know, Buffet clarinets are the choice of most professionals. Well, I am not a professional, but needed an A for orchestra. Of course I went with the Buffet. It is wonderful. The tone is extremely even and mellow. You barely even need to put air in the horn. The keywork is very comfortable and smooth to operate. All in all if you want an A clarinet, go with the R-13, you wont be sorry.
