Respected as an excellent bass clarinet for both student and amateur players, the Buffet Crampon 1180 Student Model Bass Clarinet has a rich timbre, excellent intonation, and overall comfort of playing. The bass supports an excellent fluid legato and a wide and homogeneous sound.
A warm and focussed tone is supported by the high-quality Mozambique grenadilla wood the bass is made from. The hole featured on the bow of the bell helps the lower notes respond easily and allows tonal flexibility, making the 1180 bass ideal for a wide range of musical styles. This clarinet is admired for its ease in playing between registers thanks to its new and simplified register key system.
Buffet has been producing clarinets since 1825 and are well respected within the industry. Buffet clarinets are commonplace in orchestras and ensembles across the world.
The Buffet Student Model Bass Clarinet is supplied with compact green line lightweight case, lined with high quality cotton velvet, covered with black premium cotton velvet with two black plated metal latches and side handles.
