Of all the people who have made their mark in the history of Buffet Crampon, Robert Carrée is without doubt one of the most important. He dedicated his career to perfecting the musical instrument artistically as well as mechanically. Creator of legendary instruments such as the French bassoon and the Dynaction saxophone, he revolutionized the world of the clarinet with the development of a new line with a unique, poly-cylindrical bore.
The RC model, already the world reference, got a make-over in 2014, benefiting from ten years of acoustical research and development. The overall intonation of the instrument has been reviewed and enhanced to better adapt to the ever-increasing demands of the musician. Its warm, centered tone, projection, and its improved evenness of response and intonation will give pure satisfaction to musicians aspiring to a professional level or wanting to play the top of the line.
This instrument is produced from grenadilla wood. It features silver plated keywork and blue steel springs. It has a poly-cylindrical bore, and is in the key of Bb.
