Featuring a cylindrical bore design, the new clarinet harkens back to the purity of sound produced by the BC20, with a tone hole placement inspired by the Tosca design. The result is an instrument that presents a clear, focused, rich sound suitable for any acoustic environment and an even scale for consistent intonation throughout all registers.
These innovations allow the amateur or professional clarinetist to focus on making music, rather than constantly adjusting their embouchure and voicing. The new clarinet also places its roots firmly in research and development from Buffet Crampon's American and French Artists. The American team, composed of Buffet Crampon Artists Jonathan Gunn, Burt Hara, Victoria Luperi, Mark Nuccio and Gregory Raden, along with French Artists Michel Arrignon, Nicolas Baldeyrou and Paul Meyer, were united around this project to share their performance experiences as orchestral players and soloists, and world view of the clarinet.
