Buffet RC A Clarinet
The RC clarinet lives up to musicians expectations and gives them great freedom of expression.
Of all the people who have made their mark in the history of Buffet Crampon, Robert Carrée is without doubt one of the most important. He dedicated his career to perfecting the musical instrument artistically as well as mechanically. Creator of legendary instruments such as the French bassoon and the Dynaction saxophone, he revolutionised the world of the clarinet with the development of a new line with a unique, poly-cylindrical bore.
The RC model, already the world reference, received a redesign in 2014, benefiting from ten years of acoustical research and development.
The overall intonation of the instrument has been reviewed and enhanced to better adapt to the ever-increasing demands of the musician. It’s warm, centered tone, projection, and its improved evenness of response and intonation will give pure satisfaction to musicians aspiring to a professional level.
