Buffet's years of research, experience and collaboration with international renowned clarinetists has resulted in the new Buffet Divine. The word 'divine' conjures such qualities as beauty, splendor, and awe; a level of perfection. It is a word of high praise with connotations of purity and light, with a touch of femininity.
This model benefits from having the same hole placement as the Tosca model which allows for better intonation in every register. Whereas the Tosca clarinet was the R13 bore's top range model, the Divine features the Buffet Crampon RC bore's latest evolution. The Divine is made of Grenadilla wood with specific upper joint Green Line tone-hole slots eliminating air leaks on tone-holes most prone to crack.
The carbon wire, which replaces the metal rings, makes the clarinet 60 grams lighter and thus contributes to its exceptional balance with greater vibration and freer blowing. As with the Tosca model, the Divine clarinets are equipped with a low F correction key. New keywork and spatulas enhance the clarinet's ergonomics without destabilizing the musician's capabilities.
This new range of clarinet represents a major step forward in Buffet Crampon's history, by fusing technical expertise with unparalleled craftsmanship in French wind instrument manufacturing.
