The legendary choice of professionals
Completely handmade In France by Buffet's master craftsmen, the R13 Prestige is the best 'R13' modern clarinet available today. Buffet uses only the best quality grenadilla wood, leaving it unstained and in its natural state. They add a left hand Eb lever and upgrade the clarinet to the GoreTex professional pads.
This clarinet produces a richer tone with greater presence and power compared to a traditional R13.
