 RE: buffet S1

I own a S-1 too, I believe it was made in the late 70's however, I bought it 8 years ago, while in middle school. It had only been used as a model at the store, they told me at the time that it was an intermediate instrument(and that was the only time I was ever told that). Everywhere else I've heard its a professional, just with slight changes from the R-13. I think back that I really liked it and enjoyed playing it. Unfortunately 4 years ago, I let someone that was not capable of overhauling it properly touch it. To put it shortly, it hasn't been the same since and I don't play it too often, since I have an R-13 now. But it has the same case the R-13's had of the time and at least mine has silver-plated keys. Unless you are looking to sell it, I think you should be more concerned whether or not you are happy with playing your S-1. I know I'll never part with mine, hopefully someday, I'll be in a position to have it working properly. And I wouldn't slight the model just because it isn't an R-13, there are other models in the world.

I own a Bflat Buffet S1 clarinet manufactured early 70's.
Can anybody tell me whether this is a student, intermediate, or professional level clarinet ?
