In 2021, Buffet-Crampon launched a special Mopane edition of their Divine, Légende, Tosca and R13 clarinets. It was a limited run of a total of 85 instruments. In 2023, they released a production run of these instruments.
What do you think railway ties, agricultural tools and these new clarinet models have in common? Believe it or not, these three seemingly unrelated applications all benefit from the incredible resistance offered by Southern African mopane wood.
The mopane wood enhances each model with a more mellow and warmer sound.
