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.
In forty years the E13 clarinet has never been changed but has managed to take amateur players and advancing students to music schools, wind orchestras all areas of the world and conservatories. The E13 is a professional standard of instruments, at a budget friendly price. The clarinet is made from Mozambican grenadilla wood and is manufactured in Buffet workshops. Already popular for its professional design, the E13 now introduces a new bell, inherited from its sister clarinet, the popular RC. This bell is capable of producing bright sounds with great projection.
Grenadilla Wood Body
Unlike other models, the E13 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 E13 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 beginners and younger students. This combined with an adjustable thumb rest, makes the E13 very nice to play. All tone holes have been undercut and combined with leather pads, creating a great seal with better intonation and tonal character.
