Tenor Madness is a proud dealer of Buffet clarinets! We will now carry a selection of new, handpicked R13’s in both nickel and silver plated keys, as well as continuing our inventory of used R13 clarinets.
The R13 clarinet has remained the most popular professional clarinet in the world. Its tone is rich and focused, and it is powerful in all registers. Its flexibility lends itself to all repertoires and levels of musicianship.
These clarinets will be available in factory condition as well as with a TM Custom set up. Factory condition clarinets will be priced at $3531 for nickel and $3993 for silver. Clarinets with a TM Custom set up will be available at $3706 for nickel and $4168 for silver.
The TM Custom set ups will be done by our clarinet repair specialists Randy Jones and Jimmy Jensen. The set up will begin by completely disassembling the clarinet. Once dismantled, the tone holes will be dressed, filled, and leveled to ensure a great pad seal. While re-assembling, the keys will be swedged and fit as necessary, spring tensions adjusted, and pad seat and timing regulated.
