 Re: Buffet R13 Bore sizes

I bought my 1948 Master Bore after reading into the whole "large bore equals great jazz clarinet" claim. Plus Artie Shaw allegedly played on a Pre-R13 with his Gramercy 5. And also, pre 1955 models are just so much cheaper.

Funnily enough turns out my Buffet has indeed a cylindrical design bore, but measured at 14.6mm, hardly a large bore, or even a medium bore for that matter!

Beautiful sound... Crappy Intonation though to the point that I preferred my enhanced boehm CT for ORCHESTRAL work.
