Of all the people who have made their mark in the history of Buffet Crampon, Robert Carrée (Mr. RC) 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 revolutionised the world of the clarinet with the development of a new line with a unique, poly-cylindrical bore.
Still produced in the workshops of Mantes (France), the RC model, already the world reference, received a redesign in 2014, benefitting 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, centred 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.
It is a very versatile instrument, for harmony bands, classical ensembles, symphonic music, jazz etc. Easy in emission, good projection, and very good dynamics are the characteristics of this professional instrument. Supplied in its case, with two barrels and usual accessories, without mouthpiece. We propose it with a two year guarantee from our workshop.
