"Wonderful Instrument"

I own a Greenline Bb Tosca. I am a HUGE fan of the R-13, but I wanted to try the Tosca for fun and ended up switching to the Tosca as my primary instrument. As musicians, we are all unique in what we want out of our instruments. I look for flexibility in tonal color and the instruments ability to match my needs (expressive qualities). I play the Tosca with a Clarke Fobes CF+ mouthpiece and a Chadash 65mm barrel. This combination has a remarkable sound. Some people look for the clarinets that have "ring" or "sound like chocolate", which I think has more to do with embouchure and mouthpiece than the clarinet itself. But for a clarinet with a range of capabilities from an operatic solo in FF to a fluid passage in pianissimo, the Tosca serves me well.

I have tried over 20 kinds of clarinets, including greenline r13, but when i bought this Tosca clarinet, I liked it 1000000 times better then the greenline. It's worth the price

"Best Decision of my Life"

The Buffet Tosca clarinet strives where many other professional clarinets are lacking. The most enjoyable parts of playing such an instrument are the low notes (clear, bouyant, round,) the altissimo register (not shrilly, confident attacks with that "ping" that one often gets with that one coveted reed,) and the over all resonance on every note (lack of a bell ring helps more than one thinks.) The upper joint is already outfitted in all cork pads (saves the pain of repadding.) Clarion A and Ab (often notes with a tendancy to have a weaker threshold = squeaking) are strong, dominant notes that are always clear. Minimal gripes include the provied case (thin, small, brittle) and weak sounding throat tone (althought perfectly in tune.)

"Best Investment I've Ever Made"

I am in my junior year of undergraduate school as a clarinet performance major. I had been playing on an R13 before I traded it in and purchased the Tosca after talking it over with my professor. I can honestly say that this was possibly the best investment I've ever made. The Tosca has an incredibly pure and beautiful sound, and feels so comfortable and smooth under the fingers. The dynamic range that it offers is amazing as well. The clarinet has all the power you could ever want, yet has such a clear and colorful soft dynamic. The way I would put it is that it does a lot of its own work to sound good. I highly recommend this clarinet to anyone seeking a great professional clarinet. I can't wait to keep learning more about it and grow with it. If I had to describe the Tosca as a whole in one word, I would say: "Velvet"

Selecting an upgrade clarinet is a huge positive investment into one's life. Store personel were very intelligent and patient. The instrument that I selected stays very well in tune and has the warmest, darkest sound of all in our professional clarinet choir. This is not just my opinion!

I bought my Tosca Bb to replace my old faithful nickel plated R-13. The difference was instant and amazing. For the first few weeks, I was shocked by how much better I sounded on excerpts I had been playing and working on for years. The sound is very warm, full bodied, and sweet. I have received many compliments on it since I got the new instrument. The key work is very well done but takes a little getting used to, especially the left hand C#/F# which is a little shorter than the one on my R-13. I love the alternate Eb key which I use often, and I sparingly use the extra low F key to bring myself better in tune with the low instruments of the orchestra (or band when I play band gigs- actually, I use it a lot more in band situations to get in tune with the bass clarinets, trombones, and low saxophones). Now that I am used to the Tosca key work (it took a couple months to fully get used to it), I have no difficulty in switching back and forth from my A to my Bb. The Tosca Bb actually matches my R-13 A clarinet better than my old Bb did because the sound is sweeter and it has a little more resistance, which makes switching between my A and Bb easier. Technical passages are much easier for me on this instrument than they were on my R-13 even when I was still getting used to the new key work. All that having been said, I must point out that every Tosca is going to be different simply by the fact that it is made out of an organic substance (wood :) and every one is going to have a unique sound. My advice is to try out as many as you can before coming to a decision, try to get a few sent to you so you can pick out the one that you like best. This is an expensive instrument, but well worth the money when you find that one very special instrument which outshines all the rest.

Amazing....I had an R13 before this and when it came time for me to get a new instrument (when mine died) I was leery from straying away from the R13. So I took a drive to the WWBW store. Best thing you can do if you don't live to far from it. You basically tell them what you want to try, with what mouthpiece and reeds, and you go into a practice room and try. I automatically went for the R13, and the Vintage R13. Then I seen the Tosca, remembering that it was a newer model I picked that one out to. Well it was the last one to be tried and it was my favorite by far. The lower tones are beautiful, resonate, and dark. While the Altissimo register isn't as shrill, but rather playful. It was a lot of cash but well worth it, considering I wasn't going to have to re-pad it like the other two (I like cork and leather pads). I highly recommend this to any player that is serious about their music.

I've been hearing about this clarinet for a few years now. After completing my freshman year as an undergrad in music ed/performance, I wanted to step up to the next level. My poor old 1960's era R13 pales in comparison... The tone, obviously, is wonderful. With my Pyne mouthpiece, it absolutely sings. I really love the keywork. Even for my small hands, the ergonomic shape has done wonders on my technique. The physical bore is one thing I can't help but also like. Very very dense, heavy, full of substance. When I first played on mine in particular, I could literally feel that it was an extraordinarily substantial instrument. The thing I hate most about this horn is not the horn... The case. It's so UGLY. Now, everyone talks about the luscious tone of this clarinet. MINE has that tone, yes. I made the long drive to South Bend so that I could try as many clarinets as possible without actually having to purchase any. I played on 5 Toscas. All, except the one I bought, had a dead, stuffy tone. One of my clarinet instructors claimed that the bore was SO thick and dense that the tone had nowhere to go, and was therefore stuffy. Mine, for some reason or another, still has that gorgeous color of a Buffet R13, but still maintains that luscious darkness of tone that is characteristic of a Tosca. As someone else said, try as many as possible. This horn is incredibly inconsistent, tone-wise.

"My baby"

I've had this clarinet for about a year and 8 months and it still amazes me how gorgeous it sounds. The tones are even throughout all the octaves and the sound is so warm and liquidy it makes you get goose bumps. It took a while to get used to the left hand Ab/Eb lever, but now it makes so many passages so much easier!! The low F correction key doesn't do much for me (doesn't raise the pitch enough to make an aural difference) but maybe it does more for others who play differently. I highly recommend this clarinet. It may seem like a lot of money but trust me, you will never need to upgrade again! The clarinet itself is very sturdy (though I suggest getting a sheepskin case for it because the case it comes with does not take well to wear and tear), I take good care of mine and it has yet needed to go in the shop for anything major. Good luck and happy clarinet shopping!
