Buffet Tosca Bass Clarinet to Low C
The Buffet Tosca Bass Clarinet is in keeping with the high standards of Buffet’s celebrated models produced before 1998. It gives players a subtle blend of traditional and new technologies. The Tosca has an intuitive, soundless mechanism which liberates the artist from the usual constraints imposed by the key action on the lower joint and the movements of the plateau keys of the instrument. The Tosca has been created with the symphonic orchestras in mind and broadens the spectrum of sound already appreciated in the existing B-flat and A models launched in 2004, and the E-flat model in 2010. It has a well-focused sound and vibrant tone. Assisted by the unique new register key system, it allows the most demanding musician the ability to play the instrument's entire repertoire with an exceptional freedom and confidence. And all this for a very reasonable price!
