Good choice. The R13s are the recognized standard amoung the large
majority of pro players (Selmer, Yamaha, Leblanc players are throwing
rocks at me now!). The Greenline is a great horn, but..well....
"impeccable reputation" are rather strong words. Buffet makes good
horns, but some bad ones slip through the cracks. As far as your
E11......keep it, have it re-padded, and use it for marching band,
please! (No, let's not start that thread again, guys). Really, any good
pro horn, with a good mouthpiece, will serve you for a long time.
Buffet just seems to be the clarinet (1) most players use, and (2) it's
available all over!
