OVERVIEW

An elegantly styled, beautifully crafted bass clarinet with rich tone and a long-lasting finish.

The 1193 Bass Clarinet represents Buffet Crampon craftsmanship at its greatest. A must for the serious university student or the professional symphony player, the Buffet Crampon Prestige Bass Clarinet produces a well-centered, rich tone.Along with an Eb/Ab lever and low G resonance key, the Buffet Crampon clarinet is equipped with a double D spatula and a triple D spatula.Buffet's Greenline body material is a composite made from compressed Grenadilla wood powder. The result is an instrument that is much more resistant to changes in temperature and humidity and will not crack. The sound is still as big and dark as the regular 1193, but the extra density adds more projection, allowing you to be more easily heard.

FEATURES
  • Greenline composite body: responds like grenadilla but will not crack
  • Undercut tone holes: improves tone and ease of response
  • Power forged silver-plated keywork and posts that are pre-plated in copper and finished in silver plate
  • Long lasting finish and feel
  • 2 part neck: better mouth position that frees the neck from stress and stiffness

The Cadillac of Bass Clarinets

Comments about Buffet Crampon Greenline 1193 Prestige Low C Bass Clarinet:

I love this instrument - I played one in clarinet quartet, a professional orchestra, and concert bands all the way through college and was so attached to my school instrument that I bought my own in this model. This horn has the best intonation for the discerning player, a significant improvement over Buffet's previous model. I have played a few Selmers and do not think the differences are worth the extra $3000 you'll pay for their basses. My only complaints are the mouthpiece (invest in a better one) and the case, which does not securely hold the instrument and can cause the instrument to need adjusting. THIS INSTRUMENT DOES NOT FIT WELL INTO A HERCULES STAND - invest in another brand!

Greenline -material works just well in bass clarinet like this. Easy to play all 4 octaves and more. Suitable with different mouthpiece-reed -combinations to almost any style. Worth every cent.

Comments about Buffet Crampon Greenline 1193 Prestige Low C Bass Clarinet:

I have a Buffet Prestige Low C Grenadilla bass clarinet Model 1193. I love it, but I worry about cracking. It gets real cold and very dry during our NYC winters. My new Greenline bass is magnificent!! It flat out rocks. It plays so great, I'm floored. And guess what? The necks are interchangeable!! I have a buddy who works for Buffet. After they came out with the Greenline Bb I sounded him about Buffet making a bass. At that time, he told me Buffet wouldn't do it. My dreams have now come true and I'm in heaven. A beautiful bass that will outlast me!! Grab this bass NOW!!

Comments about Buffet Crampon Greenline 1193 Prestige Low C Bass Clarinet:

I ordered this because I had tried out my teacher's wooden 1193 and he insisted I try out the greenline as well. I am so happy I did, the greenline has fantastic tone and intonation, and it projects even more than the regular Buffet 1193. The clarion B-D are surprisingly in tune, while on most low c basses they tend to play very sharp. While the price may be high, the Buffet Greenline is worth every penny
