A great professional clarinet, the RC is ideal for aspiring students and professionals. The clarinet was initially developed in 1974 and underwent a redesign in 2014 to improve its acoustical qualities. The intonation of the instrument was assessed and enhanced to take into consideration the increasing demands on the musician.
The bore of the RC was designed for even response and homogeneity in all registers. The RC has a warmer, more focused sound than that of the R13. It has a centred tone and great projection.
The RC is named after Robert Carrée, who made a very important contribution to the history of Buffet Crampon. He spent his career perfecting the musical instrument artistically and mechanically. Working on many instruments including bassoon and saxophone and revolutionising the clarinet with the development of the poly-cylindrical bore.
Buffet has been producing clarinets since 1825 and are well respected within the industry. Buffet clarinets are commonplace in orchestras and ensembles across the world.
