OVERVIEW

Versatile composite clarinet, great for outdoor playing.

The R13 Greenline series of clarinets follows the same manufacturing process as the 100% grenadlla R13s. Thanks to the addition of carbon fibers, Green Line clarinets withstand admirably to variations in atmospheric conditions (temperature, humidity). The risk of cracking is therefore eliminated.Created in 1994, the Greenline series of instruments has taken advantage of the excess wood remaining from the clarinet manufacturing process. This process of combining grenadilla powder with carbon fibers produces a clarinet that is greatly resistant to environmental change and helps to relieve stress on the African grenadilla wood population.

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.

      Comments about Buffet Crampon R13 Greenline Professional Bb Clarinet with Silver Plated Keys:

      I got the Buffet Crampon R13 Greenline Professional Bb Clarinet to use for playing outdoor and in bad weather, events. I normally play a Buffet Festival model clarinet but had become nervous about using it in outdoor situations. Although the Greenline R13 does not have all the same keys the feel of the clarinet is comparable. The Greenline does not have the same rounded sound and overtones but its increased brightness is very appropriate outside.
