Buffet Divine Bb Clarinet
Created in collaboration with the Buffet workshop and internationally renowned clarinetiest, Paul Meyer, the buffet 'Divine' clarinets are the result of years of research and a rigorous creative process. 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.
The 'Divine' benefits from having the same hole placement as Buffet's 'Tosca' model which allows for better intonation for every register. The improved bore favours flexible register-crossing and freer blowing during the most demanding pieces.
The 'Divine' clarinet comes with two barrels - 65mm (442hz) and 66mm (440hz) – which fit with both the Bb and the A model. 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 (a Buffet Crampon patent), 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.
Whereas the 'Tosca' clarinet was the R13 bores’ top range model, the 'Divine' features the Buffet Crampon RC bores’ latest evolution.
