Experience is Key

Comments about Buffet Crampon R13 Professional Bb Clarinet with Nickel Silver Keys:

I have been playing on an R13 for years. My current one is actually a mid-70s model made in Paris. What I have to say about the newer models is that they have a very similar tambre and color, but the response is just a hair less subtle. Not a huge deal, though-it's a fantastic clarinet. I have not found an interval this thing can't keep in tune, and it sounds like a dream-AS LONG AS YOU'VE BEEN PLAYING FOR A WHILE. I have a friend who got one of these early on in his career and hated it because he couldn't get used to its touchy response. So, if you're gonna buy one, remember that it's not a YCL-4 it's way more responsive and way less forgiving. So just a heads up.

Best you can get...

Comments about Buffet Crampon R13 Professional Bb Clarinet with Nickel Silver Keys:

I started playing on this Clarinet when I was in High School. I went on to play professionally in the United States Marine Corps. I traveled with this instrument and played it in every environment you can think off, I never had any problems with it. It always came through. This is not a starter horn however so if you are a beginner this will be too much for you intermediate to advanced players will make this horn shine.

Comments about Buffet Crampon R13 Professional Bb Clarinet with Nickel Silver Keys:

Excellent instrument. Only drawback is cork swells when playing, making it difficult to take apart. I still would recommend this instrument to everyone.

It is the best clarinet out there to buy

By the mail man

from Durham, NC

Comments about Buffet Crampon R13 Professional Bb Clarinet with Nickel Silver Keys:

I have been looking for a good clarinet for years and now I finally found one. I can't tell you how good it is. The tone is amazing and it is so easy to play. If you can get a R-13 it would probably be the best choice for anyone who is serious about playing.
