Buffet Crampon Vintage A Clarinet

The Buffet Crampon Vintage A Clarinet is a professional model clarinet designed to bring to mind the tonal colours of the 1950s. Designed by a buffet master craftsman René Lesieux in 1996, and given a specifically designed bore to provide suppleness and accuracy across the range of the instrument. To add to the quality finish of this instrument and thoughtfulness of design, metal caps are added to the tenons to protect from cracking or splitting.

This clarinet has a different sound world to other models from Buffet and gives the player a traditional, fluid tone. With ease of response across the range, this is a model that needs to be tried to hear the 1950s influence and be absorbed in the warm nostalgic tones.
