The legendary choice of professional clarinetists.

Throughout its long lifetime, Buffet Crampon has developed the most complete range of clarinets, while always taking the requirements of musicians, conductors and composers into consideration. Developed in 1955 under the guidance of Robert Carree, the R13 clarinet quickly became the legendary choice of professional musicians. Musicians are charmed by its rich and focused sound, its power in all registers and its flexibility. The R13 is suitable for all types of musician, symphony or chamber music, soloists, teachers, those in marching bands, students and amateurs.

Buffet Crampon R-13 has stained grenadilla wood, a hand-burnished bore, power-forged keywork and posts, pre-plated in copper and finished in either nickel or silver plate, silver-plated adjustable thumb rest, undercut tone holes, polycarbonate fiber reinforced tenons and Gore-Tex pads.

Most clarinetists purchasing an instrument with this level of distinction have particular preferences in terms of mouthpieces, so the Tosca Bb clarinet is priced and shipped without one. A fine-quality French-made HB ligature is included. The HB is a silver-plated metal ligature that is very easy blowing and provides a round, centered and brilliant sound as well as a superior detaché in the upper register.

NOTE: Buffet does not include a mouthpiece with this instrument.
