Legacy of the Tosca
Originally designed in 1955 by the reputable Robert Carree, this clarinet became a huge hit in the USA before becoming a favourite among many professional clarinetists and experienced amateur musicians. What leads musicians to this instrument is its focused and rich tone combined with its ability to play throughout all registers sweetly. It is also extremely versatile, meaning it can be played in a number of genres: from orchestras to military bands to jazz.
The Buffet Tosca A uses the Grenadilla wood that is found from African Blackwood. This is then treated and stained to produce a body that has a fantastic tone and projection, but also has durability. The Poly-cylindrical bore of this clarinet has been manufactured to the Buffet Crampon method, which included many years of expertise and knowledge.
Top Quality Mechanisms
With any Buffet Clarinet, you are purchasing one of the best designed and manufactured clarinets on the market. The stainless steel rods and pivot screws are silver plated to provide strength, durability and a stylish look. The maillechort keywork (an alloy of copper, zinc and nickel) has been cold forged and plated in copper and then silver plating. This gives a smoother finish and a longer lasting set of materials. The waterproof GT pads meet undercut tone holes to create a fantastic seal and a sound that is full of tone. After all this, the instrument is adjusted and tuned to precise measurements by expert technicians before it leaves the factory. As a tribute to the clarinets of decades past, the key posts are left in their bare state, to give a vintage and aesthetically pleasing result.
