The famous Buffet RC Prestige Green Line Eb Clarinet has benefited from numerous improvements. Now its already remarkable tone is even better: the shape of the bell plays a major role in adding warmth and focus.
Carefully chosen quality materials, the talents of the best craftsmen, cutting-edge technology and unparalleled skills come together in the RC Prestige.
The body of the Buffet RC Prestige Green Line Eb Clarinet is made of Green Line.
The high precision bore and undercutting of tone holes are carried out according to Buffet Crampon's strict specifications.
The keywork is made of Nickel Silver, which is Pre-Plated in Copper, then Silver Plated and Cold Power Forged. The rods and pivot screws are in Stainless Steel and are fine tuned. It comes with Pointed Needle Springs and GORE-TEX ® Pads.
Buffet Crampon have created a modern and innovative material called 'Green Line' after becoming aware of the importance of conserving the world supply of precious wood, such as ebony.
Green Line is made by blending 95% of ebony powder with carbon fibre. It has the same acoustic qualities as ebony and is suited to the high demands of today's musician because of its stability in all playing environments.
The addition of carbon fibres means that Green Line clarinets are not susceptible to variations in atmospheric conditions; the risk of cracking is therefore eliminated.
