This is a Buffet Pre-R13 model Bb clarinet, likely manufactured in the late 1940s. Both body joints are in excellent condition, and do not appear to show any history of major past repair or crack repair. The nickel silver key work is also in very good condition. This clarinet includes an original 66mm barrel, with some minor scratches inside.
This instrument has been professionally overhauled in our shop. The work included a dissemble, cleaning, oil treatment and polishing of the key work. It is now in excellent playing condition with new cork upper joint pads, and new traditional lower joint pads.
At the time of its production, this was considered a top-of-the-line professional clarinet. This clarinet would be ideal for players seeking something different than traditional R13 sound and response, or for a Buffet collector.
