Research And Development

The Buffet Bb tradition is collaboration between American and French artists.

The American team comprised of artist like Burt Hara, Victoria Luperi, Jonathan Gunn, Gregory Raden, and Mark Nuccio. The French team featured dedicated artists like Paul Meyer, Nicolas Baldeyrou, and Michel Arrignon. All these artists came together and combined their knowledge and experience acquired through many years of playing in orchestras and also in solo performances to create a dynamic instrument. The Buffet Bb Tradition combines the best of both worlds and the results are unbelievable.

The instrument gives you an authentic original design that adapts to modern musical performances and acoustics.

Features & Sound Quality

One of the most unique features of the Buffet Bb Tradition is its cylindrical bore. The instrument features a cylindrical bore design, which makes it a perfect addition to the RC and R13 clarinet families. The cylindrical bore enables the Buffet Bb Tradition to produce a very pure sound to the level of the BC20. The instrument also features a tone hole placement borrowed from the Tosca design. All these innovative design features create a clarinet that produces a very rich and clear sound that suits any acoustic presentation. This instrument also plays on an even scale that enables consistent intonations when moving throughout the registers.
