An artisan-level instrument, truly a masterwork.
The Buffet R-13 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. Crafted in high-quality grenadilla wood to ensure evenness of tone and response. The R-13's 3-step polycyndrical bore is noted for its dark, full sound.
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.
The mechanics are prepared and finished with great precision: milling holes inside the specifications according to the Buffet Crampon expertise.
The tenons of the body are capped with metal rings, in order to limit the risk of cracks. The mechanics are carefully assembled and adjusted by expert technicians.
NOTE: Buffet does not include a mouthpiece with this instrument.
