This clarinet was developed in 1975 by Robert Carree, whose initials are carried through the range of clarinets. The main characteristic of this instrument is its focused and pure tone, created through the carefully selected african blackwood body. This gives the performer freedom of expression and flexibility.
The Buffet RC clarinet has a simple design featuring the standard 17 keys and 6 rings. All keywork is silver plated, which is long lasting and ergonomic – allowing ease of play for busy professionals. This combined with an adjustable thumb rest, makes the RC very nice to play. All tone holes have been undercut and combined with leather and cork pads, creating a great seal with better intonation and tonal character.
