collapse expand iconDescription

Entirely retooled to offer young students and amateur players an instrument that offers strong fundamental presence in the lowest notes, which are the pillars of harmony. Provide an anchor for your orchestra. The BC 1180 suits every musical style.
This clarinet facilitates the jump between intervals thanks to its simplified register key system. Its wide, homogeneous sound palette and extremely fluid legato allow the musician to experiment with every acoustic or technical idea imaginable.
‹As the only student bass clarinet made from selected and treated grenadilla wood from Mozambique, delivered in a compact, lightweight case, the new Buffet Crampon 1180 stands out thanks to the quality of its manufacture, its remarkable intonation, timbre and overall comfort. It sets itself as the global standard for student bass clarinets.
