This pre-owned Buffet Tradition professional Clarinet is in great mechanical condition. It has been carefully set-up in our Woodwind workshop prior to sale and comes with a 6 month warranty and single case. It would be ideal as an upgrade/pro model Bb Clarinet it offers a great blend of vintage and contemporary design and tone.
The new Tradition has been inspired by a 1960s design while taking into account the needs of modern musical repertoire and performance practice, this brand new cylindrical bore compliments the R13 and RC bore families, adding a new acoustic dimension to the Buffet offerings. The project was completed with the objective of offering a clarinet in its most natural form, with no unnecessary changes or overstated technology. The new bore concept traces its inspiration to one of the earliest modern professional clarinets, the fabled Buffet Crampon BC20.
Featuring a cylindrical bore design, the new clarinet harkens back to the purity of sound produced by the BC20, with a tone hole placement inspired by the Tosca design. The result is an instrument that presents a clear, focused, rich sound suitable for any acoustic environment and an even scale for consistent intonation throughout all registers.
Interestingly the new clarinet also places its roots firmly in research and development from Buffet Crampon’s American and French Artists, this may not seem a huge thing but bear in mind most new Buffet models since 1960 have been developed nearly exclusively with French players only, often who work in the Paris music scene. This more global consulting process is surely a step in the right direction.
