The Buffet R13, legendary choice of professionals, was created in 1955 by Robert Carree and is the most popular clarinet in the world. The R13 Prestige features Buffet's iconic poly-cylindrical bore design, giving it a beautiful, brilliant and focused tone, and allowing for evenness, flexibility, clear response, and excellent intonation across all its registers.
The R13 Prestige is one of the top models in the R13 bore family of clarinets. The Grenadilla wood is carefully selected for its acoustic and aesthetic qualities and the wood is carefully polished and left in its natural color. The mechanics of the R13 Prestige are prepared and finished with great precision: the tone holes are undercut according to Buffet Crampon specifications, and the keywork is carefully assembled and adjusted by expert technicians.

All of our professional clarinets are hand-selected at either the Buffet Crampon headquarters in the US, or the factory in France. After hand-selection, the instruments receive a complete set-up in our repair shop. This includes: resurfacing tone holes, pad upgrades, pad reseating and leveling, key fitting, and tension adjustments. Once the set-up is complete, our clarinet repair technician will play-test the instrument to ensure everything is in good working order from a repair standpoint, and then one of our clarinetists will play-test it to ensure everything is good from a player's perspective. We do this at no additional charge for you (work is valued at $450).
