Since 1825 Buffet has developed around the recognition of its instrument manufacture. The guarantee of such quality is the charm to a player's heart and as all products are made in either France or Germany workshops this quality is continuously reliable. All workers start as apprentices to learn everything they need to from highly skilled craftsmen, however the most important skills are dedication, passion and patience. Since birth almost every Buffet instrument has been continuously tested and developed. Listening to its players needs, Buffet has adapted the instruments to cope with the period in time.
Designed by Michel Arrignon, the Buffet Tosca is an example of the skills the highly experienced craftsmen acquire. Tosca's favoured characteristics include rich harmonies, flexibility and ease of response. The poly-cylindrical bore shape became a huge hit in the USA before becoming a favourite among many professional clarinetists and experienced amateur musicians. Favored for its focused and rich tone combined with its ability to play throughout all registers evenly, the bore is extremely versatile and can be played in a variety of musical styles - from orchestras to military bands to jazz. The Buffet Tosca uses grenadilla wood found from African blackwood. This is then treated and stained to produce a body with fantastic tone and projection, but also durability.
Grenadilla Wood Body
Unlike other models, the Tosca features an African Blackwood (otherwise known as Grenadilla) body. The benefit from this wood body is the unprecedented tone, which is favoured by all professional musicians and has been the professional choice of wood for decades.
Keys and Mechanisms
The Buffet Tosca clarinet has a simple design featuring 19 keys and 6 rings. All keywork is silver or gold plated, which is long lasting and ergonomic - allowing ease of play for busy professionals. This combined with an adjustable thumb rest, makes the Tosca very nice to play. All tone holes have been undercut and combined with leather and natural cork pads, creating a great seal with better intonation and tonal character.
