Buffet Crampon R-13 professional clarinets have been the standard for professional and advanced student clarinetists. Using premium African black wood, R-13 clarinets produce a colorful sound with excellent projection.
This model is produced in “Green-Line” material. Green-Line material has the same tonal performance as wood. It is made from Grenadilla powder (95%) and carbon fiber. The Grenadilla powder is obtained by crushing smaller left over pieces of Grenadilla into the dust. This helps eliminate wood that is otherwise wasted. The 2 materials are then pressure formed into the new Green-Line material. There are many benefits to this material. Foremost is the fact that the Green-Line material is stable and does not warp or shift with climate. The material also eliminates the risk of traditional cracks.
Every Buffet R13 purchased through Lisa’s Clarinet Shop is professionally set up at no additional cost to you!
