Buffet R13 Golden Age Professional Clarinet Getting a Full Restoration now!$ 2,350
This beautiful R13 is getting a full restoration by Mike Hollis in Pittsburgh right now. Mike is a real clarinet geek and does restorations like this at the highest level. This instrument came along with a beautiful vintage Selmer tenor sax, and the pair of instruments both play really beautifully. The original owner must have had very good taste in selecting them. There are no repairs or cracks or issues. The photos are obviously before it gets restored. It should be ready in early July. If you want to reserve it, let me know. Even on original pads, it had a big, beautiful, round tone and sounded like a real winner. With a restoration, it will be fantastic.
