The new Buffet ICON Bells available at Howarth of London
"Developed by Buffet Crampon, the shape of the ICON bell is narrowed at the midpoint and the base is not ringed. The flare has been specifically redesigned to optimise projection of airflow. Handsomely turned out with a choice of three finishes - pink gold, silver or black nickel - for the ferrule, the ICON bell will help enrich your sound palette."
"The ICON Bell offers a highly centred sound which facilitates sound production. The upper register is particularly fluid and the low tones are rich and powerful. With its slender lines it weighs some 30% less than a traditional bell. At Buffet Crampon every bell in the professional clarinet range is selected before being stamped, in order to guarantee the best performance for each model. The quality of the wood is an important factor in the sound, which is why we recommend that you choose your bell in the way you choose your instrument. As well as trying it out for sound, the choise of finishes of the ferrule is also something to consider for the look"Take a look at the ICON range here
