The Buffet R13 is our most popular professional model clarinet. It is the standard choice for many professional players. This is the standard version pitched in Bb. It is also available pitched in A.

Developed under the guidance of Robert Carree, the R13 clarinet has been the choice of professionals since 1955, and nothing has changed about it since.

The R13 is suitable for all musicians, symphony or chamber music, soloists, teachers, students and even those in marching bands. There is a greenline version also available which is good for outdoor playing.

The R13 has a rich and focused sound, with power in all registers.

The wood for the R13 is carefully chosen for its acoustic and aesthetic qualities and therefore is unstained.

The R13 now comes without a mouthpiece, but has an upgraded ligature made by HB in France.

Features:

  • African blackwood (grenadilla) body
  • Pitch A 440
  • Power forged keywork, pre-plated in copper and finished in silver plate
  • 17 keys and 6 rings
  • Poly-cylindrical bore
  • Double fish skin pads
  • Deluxe hard case with locks

R13 or RC?

The Buffet R13 and RC clarinets are very similar. The R13 was designed for the American market and the RC for the European market. Previously, the R13 has been more popular in the UK, but it is becoming more of a 50/50 split recently.

The R13 has a very slightly darker sound to it and the RC has a little more flexibility. The bore on the R13 is more cylindrical and the RC is more tapered at the lower end, the speaker pipe is also higher up. The keywork is practically the same between the two models.

We find the instruments very similar, it will come down to personal preference with which one you chose. We recommend you visit one of our stores to try different the models if you are unsure.
