Professional A for those who prefer nickel.

The Buffet R13 Professional A clarinet features a French system in the key of A. The legendary choice of professionals, it has a .576" bore, 65 mm barrel, premium-quality grenadilla wood, 17-key, 6-ring nickel-plated keys, polycylindrical bore, undercut tone holes and an adjustable thumb rest. A deluxe naugahyde-covered wood shell case with plush interior is included.

The Buffet R13 clarinet has a 40-year history of quality and craftsmanship. From the wind ensembles to the great symphony orchestras, it is the benchmark in clarinet manufacturing with rich and focused sound, power in all registers and great flexibility. Crafted in high-quality grenadilla wood to ensure evenness of tone and response.

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.
