The Buffet Crampon R13 Bb Clarinet in Mopane Wood is also a limited edition clarinet made from Mopane wood with a poly-cylindrical bore, bladder pads, and a leather case. The reddish-brown hues that make up the clarinet are thanks to the Mopane trees that grow in low-lying regions. Mopane wood is known for its exceptional tonewood quality, and low porosity.

The Legendary Choice of Professionals, the R13 clarinet. Created by Buffet Crampon and Robert Carrée, the R13 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.  

Following a revamping in 1995, the Buffet R13 has maintained its reputation as one of the most playable and best liked clarinets on the market.
Among the qualities that have helped the Buffet Crampon R13 retain its popularity is the horn's reputation for superb construction and tone as well as its ability to produce lively, rich, rounded, and powerful sound in all registers. With all this marvelous sound, R13 Clarinets remain easy to blow, earning the respect and appreciation of musicians.
