Buffet RC Clarinet

The Buffet RC clarinet is without doubt the most successful design of clarinet ever produced. Buffet models that succeeded the RC always bear design and bore dimensions that refer to this clarinet, which was the creation of Robert Carree in 1955.

For players in UK until the 1970’s B&H Clarinets in either 926 Imperial or 1010 format were the norm. For advanced students we always recommend they purchase a Buffet RC clarinet either new or used for 3 reasons. The first reason is that it is the bench mark instrument for all other professional instruments; secondly that it retains a good proportion of its initial cost if it needs to be sold and thirdly that it is a wonderful clarinet.

The basic Buffet RC clarinet produced today from the Buffet factory in France is a 17 key 6 ring instrument with an adjustable thumb rest. The unique key design is very strong by its clever construction with forged keys silver plated on top of a copper coating to the forged key. It is eminently suitable for all types of music. The focus and darkness together stability of pitch with the ability to be sweet is perhaps its main attraction. The RC is equally well at home in the Symphonic world as well as in Jazz or the Military Band world.
