Buffet Crampon | RC Prestige A Clarinet


Out of stock


The RC Prestige is well known for its consistent performance and vibrant sound. Ideal for professional clarinet players, the RC Prestige is one of the top models in the RC bore family.


Made of unstained Grenadilla wood, the dark sound generated by this clarinet is adaptable to many different styles. The tenons are capped with metal rings for greater stability of the wood and to avoid cracking.


The bell of the RC Prestige has a unique shape, this adds focus and direction to the chalumeau register and increases the projection and balance across all registers. The undercut tone holes allow an ease of response throughout the instrument.
