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

The superior quality double fish skin pads meet undercut tone holes to create a fantastic seal and a sound that is full of tone.
