BUFFET PARIS CRAMPON R13. pitched in the key of "Bb", #57737(1957)
Another example of a very early Buffet "R13" clarinet. This was right on the cusp of the generation of R13's and the so-called Pre-R13's. We know this an R13 is in fact an R13 because A) it has the middle/throat tone G# and A keys set apart as different key mechanisms, and B) the clarinet has the R13 characteristic "Cut-Outs" beneath the right pinky cluster of keys. This clarinet is also characterized by a beautifully thick and dense Grenadilla Wood makeup. Newly repadded (Cork pads on the top), with professionally polished key work. No cracks or repaired cracks. Comes with the original 65 Millimeter barrel; plays with a nice full sound and plays in tune. Good price on this one! $1450.
SOLD
Buffet Paris Crampon C13 "International" Model;
This is like an E11, a Buffet Intermediate model, but made in Paris (we think), as opposed to Germany, and not widely available here in the States. It is widely considered a small step above the Ell. Has the same kind of 65 mm barrel, but does have silver plated keys. This one is only about 4 years old, and was purchased from the original owner who bought it brand new at a local music store, and it did not play it much at all. Serviced with great case. Pads look like new! It's a very high quality intermediate Buffet! Brand new these sell in the high teens. Sold here for $750.
SOLD

SELMER

Selmer “Brevette”  #A1179 (1920's to early 1930's)
-Selmer Paris “Brevette S.G.D.G” Wood clarinet. Serial # A1179. This is a special clarinet. This is a very early defintely professional Selmer model, that probably dates back to the 1920's. The serial numbers listed online for these Selmers are inconclusive for this model; we have placed this dating back to the '20's-30's. As such, and with the original 64 mm barrel, it plays well in tune through the clarion register, but it is a little sharp above high G (right above the staff), and somewhat more above high C.
Several Special Features:
-All new pads-white, corks and felts. Overhauled by a master repairman with over 40 years experience. Tested by us. (I am a pro woodwind artist. check my web site.) Good spring action. Good solid color to wood. Has these special features:
-Articulated G# mechanism, (with the hole through the bottom cork on the upper tenon),  which works well.
-Low C to C# (or conversely middle G to G#) trill key in the right hand (place before/above the alternate low B/middle F# trill key)
-Plateau like Ring on that low C/middle G key
Also, At the upper tenon, around the insigna, and above the middle A and to the below the two trill key pad cups adjacent, this clarinet has been pinned in some at least four places. This was not done by us, but was done at some point previously, perhaps some time ago. There are no other cracks or repaired cracks save for a a small hairline at the top tenon, near the pinning above the A key. Priced fairly at $750.00
Serie 9 Selmer Paris Depose Clarinet, #T1200 (1963)
This is a special clarinet. This is a professional Selmer model. It has 2 original barrels: 64 and 65 mm. It has excellent all white pads and has been serviced professionally. There is no brown markings on the pads. It came to us having been repadded recently and we had it serviced. There are no cracks or repaired cracks. Comes in the original, collectible, "Chesterfield" style zippered brown case in good condition.
Several Special Features:
-Articulated G# mechanism, (with the hole through the bottom cork on the upper tenon),  which works well.
-Left pinky Eb trill key
-Low C to C# (or conversely middle G to G#) trill key in the right hand (place before/above the alternate low B/middle F# trill key)
-Plateau like Ring on that low C/middle G key
Priced fairly at $1050
