OVERVIEW

Warm and focused.

Carefully chosen quality materials, the talents of the best craftsmen, cutting-edge technology, and unparalleled skills come together in the RC Prestige. The smaller, French bore (which extends into the bell) provides more focus and warmth. The masterful keywork responds easily and evenly.

Prestige RC clarinet designed by Robert Carre with special inside bell shape for better sound emission, 18 silver plated keys and 6 rings, auxiliary Eb lever, undercut tone holes, metal tenon caps, GORE-TEX pads, adjustable thumb rest, deluxe naugahyde covered wood shell case with plush interior.

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 dtach in the upper register.

FEATURES
  • Finest materials and workmanship
  • Impeccable tone and mechanics
  • Timeless design

The rich and dark lower register you have been seeking. Order soon.

Comments about Buffet Crampon RC Prestige A Clarinet:

Some of you may have heard that rc clarinets play according to european standards: more compact sound, not as projecting, tunes to 442, Wrong! Just get a inverted cone bore barrel or a relatively open mp of 1.06 or bigger that fits you are good. This clarinet is big sounding and will suit you well for both chamber and the loudness of the American orchestral settings. It is also noticeably powerful and thick sounding too with creamy focus and flowy eveness. Also, who wouldn't want a clarinet in which the alitissimo range plays spot on in tune. This instrument plays much more cinsistently in tune compared to r13 bores generally. Anyways, this clarinet is very beautiful.
