The wood of the Prestige R13 is carefully chosen for its acoustic and aesthetic qualities and therefore remains unstained. The undercutting of each tone hole is carried out according to Buffet Crampon’s top-of-the-range stringent standards. The upper and lower joint tenons come with metal rings which reduce the risk of cracks. The keywork is carefully tried, tested, and adjusted by expert craftsmen to work perfectly. The models have Gore-Tex pads, an adjustable thumb rest, and an Eb / Ab lever as standard. The 13 Prestige has a powerful sound and a focused and flexible tone in all registers….
