The bass clarinet is the instrument of the 21st Century. It is often played by orchestra musicians in operas, due to its capacity to play pianissimo in expressive melodies. It can also play swing and is not limited to a single kind of music.
Sumptuous pages of music have been written for it. The Prestige bass clarinet is also a solo instrument. All major orchestra clarinettists have played the bass clarinet.
The BC1183 Prestige model is perfectly adapted to the experienced amateur and the ensemble musician. Its tone is rich, homogenous and focused.
The Prestige BC1193 bass clarinet is a perfect representative of Buffet Crampon’s savoir-faire at its highest level. It has an Eb/Ab lever and a low G resonance key, and is equipped with a double D spatula and a triple D spatula.
Both of these clarinets, which have evolved and been perfected over many years of research and testing, possess the signature tone of Buffet Crampon instruments and have a warm, full timbre. They both have a neck in two parts for greater comfort without stress or stiffness.
Buffet Crampon is the standard brand of reference for the bass clarinet and offers these two professional models in a choice of grenadilla wood or the Green LinE composite material.
