Buffet RC Prestige Greenline Eb Clarinet
The Greenline RC Prestige is the perfect package for a professional playing in all conditions
If you are a professional Clarinet player you will find that the RC Prestige is one of the top models in the RC bore family of clarinets. You will find it plays just like a wooden clarinet in weight and tone, without the risk of cracking!
The RC Greenline series of clarinets follows the same manufacturing process and design as the 100% grenadilla RCs. Thanks to the addition of carbon fibres, 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 fibres produces a clarinet that is greatly resistant to environmental change and helps to relieve stress on the African grenadilla wood population.
The mechanics are prepared and finished with great precision: milling holes inside the specifications according to the Buffet Crampon expertise. The mechanics are carefully assembled and adjusted by expert technicians.
Due to its conical bore, the RC Prestige clarinet has a darker sound. 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
