Buffet RC Prestige Eb Clarinet
Carefully chosen quality materials, the talents of the best craftsmen, cutting-edge technology and unparalleled skills come together in the RC Prestige Eb Clarinet.
As a professional player you will find the RC Prestige is one of the top models in the RC bore family of clarinets. The Grenadilla wood is carefully selected for its acoustic and aesthetic qualities and the wood is carefully polished and left in its natural colour.
The mechanics are prepared and finished with great precision: milling holes inside the specifications according to the Buffet Crampon expertise. The tenons of the body are capped by metal rings, in order to limit the risk of cracks. The mechanics are carefully assembled and adjusted by expert technicians.
Due to its conical bore, the RC Prestige clarinet has a darker sound. Using higher grade wood it also gives better projection with more tone control, and is less likely to crack. In addition, the bore is hand-burnished, giving greater precision. This is important, as the bore is vital to good tuning. These models have reinforced tenons for added strength and upgraded Gore-Tex pads.
- Wooden body: Select unstained African blackwood for a warm and pure tone
- Undercut tone holes: Improves tone and ease of response
- Power forged silver plated keywork, pre-plated in copper, finished in silver plate: Long lasting finish and comfortable feel
- Gore-Tex pads: Are long lasting and create a good seal
- Bore: Poly-cylindrical upper joint, conical lower joint & bell
- Egg-shaped inside bell shape: Greater sound emission
- Metal capped tenons: For stability and a centered tone
