The RC Clarinet
This clarinet was developed in 1975 by Robert Carree, whose initials are carried through the range of clarinets. The main characteristic of this instrument is its focused and pure tone, created through the carefully selected grenadilla wood body. This gives the performer freedom of expression and flexibility.
Grenadilla Wood Body
Unlike other models, the RC features an unstained grenadilla wood 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 RC clarinet has a simple design featuring 18 keys and 6 rings. All keywork is copper and silver, which is long lasting and ergonomic - allowing ease of play for busy professionals. This combined with an adjustable thumb rest, makes the RC 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.
