Try out a few and pick the one you like. This will probably be very
frustrating, because they will tend to play pretty consistently. (If this
is the case, you should take it as a good sign of Buffet's ever-increasing
quality control.) I believe that each & every R-13 now distributed goes
through the hands of our own Francois Kloc.

For $1,700, I don't think you could buy a better clarinet (obviously my
opinion). This is a very good price, and the R-13 is the standard of
professional throughout the world. I rough guesstimate would be that 80-90%
of the professional orchestral clarinetists in this county use that horn.
Mine are between 30 and 40 years old, and are still doing fine.

There are more expensive clarinets out there--and some of them are "better."
You'd have to spend a whole lot more money, though.

Hello all!

Lately, I've been shopping around for a new clarinet, and happen to come by
a brand new Buffet R-13 for $1700 at a store called Woodwind Enterprises in
Garden City, Michigan. The owner said that I could try out as many of the
new R-13's he had before I decide to purchace one. Is that a good deal, or
is there something I should be warned about?
