Overview

For the player who enjoys more focus, the Buffet Prestige RC clarinet, features a smaller bore design that produces a compact and vibrant sound. Another special feature of the RC Prestige Buffet clarinet is the special egg shape inside the bell. This contour allows the chalumeau notes of the Buffet RC Prestige to really speak.

The body is in M'Pingo wood, selected, dried and tested with care, High precision bore, undercutting of tone holes carried out according to BUFFET CRAMPON strict specifications, 18 silver plated keys and 6 rings, keywork in nickel silver, pre-plated in copper, then silver plated, cold power forged, rods and pivot screws in stainless steel and fine tuned, pointed needle springs, GORE-TEX pads, Eb/Ab lever, adjustable thumb rest. Complete with leather covered case and genuine Buffet care products.

Numerous improvements have been made to the famous RC Prestige, now its already remarkable tone is even better: the shape of the bell plays a major role in adding warmth and focus. Carefully chosen quality materials, the talents of the best craftsmen, cutting-edge technology and unparalleled skills come together in the RC Prestige.

Most clarinetists purchasing an instrument with this level of distinction have particular preferences in terms of mouthpieces, so the Tosca Bb Clarinet is priced and shipped without one. A fine quality French-made HB ligature is included. The HB is a silver-plated metal ligature that is very easy-blowing and provides a round, centered and brilliant sound as well as a superior detaché in the upper register.
NOTE: Buffet does not include a mouthpiece with this instrument.
