Since 1825 Buffet has developed around the recognition of its instrument manufacture. The guarantee of such quality is the charm to a player's heart and as all products are made in either France or Germany workshops this quality is continuously reliable. All workers start as apprentices to learn everything they need to from highly skilled craftsmen, however the most important skills are dedication, passion and patience. Since birth almost every Buffet instrument has been continuously tested and developed. Listening to its players needs, Buffet has adapted the instruments to cope with the period in time.
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 clarinetists and experienced amateur musicians. The main characteristics of this clarinet are the focused and rich tones combined with its ability to play throughout all registers. It is also extremely versatile and so it can be played in a number of genres such as orchestras, military bands and jazz.
Grenadilla Wood Body
Unlike other models, the R13 features an African Blackwood (otherwise known as Grenadilla) body. The benefit from this wood body is the unprecedented tone, which is favoured by all professional musicians and has been the professional choice of wood for decades.
Keys and Mechanisms
The Buffet R13 clarinet has a simple design featuring the standard 17 keys and 6 rings. All keywork is silver plated, which is long lasting and ergonomic - allowing ease of play for the busy professional. This combined with an adjustable thumb rest, makes the R13 very nice to play. All tone holes have been undercut and combined with double fish skin pads, creating a great seal with better intonation and tonal character.
