Especially you Clarinet gurus’
Just bought and re-padded a Buffet B13 ebonite clarinet, this is my first B13 after buying countless B12’s (I love em!)
Seems to be a quality horn, and after the servicing it plays very similar to the B12 and much superior to the Indonesian Yamaha aimed at similar punters or of course Jupiter and other generic rubbish.
Apparently (news to me) there is now a B16? I haven’t seen one as yet, have you? have learnt they are German.
Anyway, will blow the B13 a few more times and see..... I think they are still German or France, perhaps you may know?
She is listed on the website for $420
