The Buffet R13 clarinet is by far the most popular clarinet on the American market. It’s warmth, evenness and beauty of tone have been revered by American players for years.
We hand-select all of our R13 clarinets and look for ones that have a rich, resonant tone with a sweet core (a clarinet that ‘sings’) as well as an even scale/resistance throughout the registers. We also offer the RMS Upgrade for R13s, which includes detailed keywork and a combination of premium Valentino pads and white leather pads. We find that this combination maximizes overall resonance, evenness and achieves a more vocal quality in the connection between certain notes.
