The Buffet R13 is the “Legendary Choice of Professionals.” This clarinet is one of Buffet Crampon’s historic models. Created in 1955 by Robert Carrée, the R13 clarinet was a big hit in the United States and still meets with unprecedented success. Its tone is focused and rich, and it is powerful in all registers. Its flexibility lends itself to all repertoires: symphonies or chamber music, soloists, teachers, military bands, students or amateurs.
Using the expertise gathered since 1825, Buffet Crampon has been an innovator in the world of music. Aware of the importance of conserving the world supply of precious wood, such as ebony, Buffet Crampon created a modern and innovative material called Green Line.
Green Line is the result of blending 95% of ebony powder with carbon fiber in a process patented by Buffet Crampon. It has the same acoustic qualities as ebony and is suited to the high demands of today’s musician because of its stability in all playing environments. The addition of carbon fibers means that Green Line clarinets are not susceptible to variations in atmospheric conditions, (changes in temperature and humidity), the risk or cracking is therefore eliminated.
Many soloists, symphonic, or military band musicians around the world have chosen to play Green Line instruments.
