Buffet-Crampon Tradition Bb Clarinet

“Buffet Crampon, the pinnacle of world-class clarinet production for 190 years and creator of the revolutionary poly-cylindrical bore design, innovates again with a new bore concept.


Inspired by a pre-1950s 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 brand’s catalog.


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. These innovations allow the amateur or professional clarinetist to focus on making music, rather than constantly adjusting their embouchure and voicing.”
