Buffet Crampon RC Eb Clarinet

The Buffet Crampon RC Eb Clarinet is a top quality professional Eb clarinet. Developed in 1975 by Robert Carrée and redesigned in 2014, which benefitted form 10 years of acoustical research and development. The overall intonation has been improved upon and enhanced from the first model to better adapt to the increasing demands of the musician. Its warm, centred tone, projection, and improved evenness of response and intonation is why this model is so popular for professionals, aspiring professional clarinettists or for anyone wanting to play a quality professional instrument with a rich luxurious tone.

Made from high quality grenadilla wood, with the special and unique poly-cylindrical bore design by Carrée for the RC and finished with silver plated key work, the RC Eb plays as freely as the Bb with stability in all registers as a result of the specific design of its bore.
