Product details

Suitable for

This iconic model from Buffet, one of the world's leading clarinet manufacturers, is the ideal choice for you as an advanced or professional player looking for an instrument that is able to perform a variety of musical pieces with precision and fantastic response.

Plays just like a wooden clarinet in weight and tone, without the risk of cracking!

Unique benefits

The Buffet R13 was created in 1955 by Robert Carrée and is the most popular professional clarinet in the world. Its tone is focused and rich, and it is powerful in all registers.

Its flexibility lends itself to all repertoires: symphonies or chamber music, soloists, teachers, military bands, students or amateurs.

The R13 Greenline series of clarinets follows the same manufacturing process and design as the 100% grenadilla R13s. Thanks to the addition of carbon fibers, Green Line clarinets withstand admirably to variations in atmospheric conditions (temperature, humidity). The risk of cracking is therefore eliminated. Created in 1994, the Greenline series of instruments has taken advantage of the excess wood remaining from the clarinet manufacturing process. This process of combining grenadilla powder with carbon fibers produces a clarinet that is greatly resistant to environmental change and helps to relieve stress on the African grenadilla wood population.


  • Wooden body: Stained African blackwood for a warm and pure tone
  • Adjustable thumb rest: For a more natural and comfortable hand position
  • Undercut tone holes : Improves tone and ease of response
  • Power forged silver: plated keywork, preplated in copper, finished in silver plate : Long lasting finish and comfortable feel
  • Double fish skin pads: Are long lasting and create a good seal
  • Hand burnished bore: Improves intonation and centres tone
