Buffet Crampon Divine Bb Clarinet
Buffet Crampon Divine Bb ClarinetDetails
The Buffet Crampon Divine Bb Clarinet has been researched and developed by Paul Meyer, combining extensive experience and innovation to provide another choice for professional players. The Buffet Crampon Divine has the same hole placement as the Tosca model which enables better intonation in every register. An improved bore favours flexible register-crossing and freer blowing during the most ambitious pieces. This clarinet is made from grenadilla wood with upper joint green line tone-hole slots that help to stop the possibility of air leaks. This product is 60 grams lighter thanks to its replaced metal rings with carbon wire. The lightness of the clarinet gives it exceptional balance, greater vibration and freer blowing. Just like the Tosca model, the divine clarinets come with a low F correction key. Without changing the musician's capabilities the new keywork and spatulas have enhanced the clarinet's ergonomics. The Divine has impeccable intonation as well as an unlimited potential for a vast range of tonal characters due to its ease of play, focus and simplified poly-cylindrical bore. Made from the best-selected natural African blackwood, the Buffet Crampon Divine Bb Clarinet blends innovation and tradition in perfect harmony. The Divine comes equipped with a case, ligature and reed.

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.
The Divine Clarinet
Researched and developed by Paul Meyer, the Divine clarinet was brought to life while trying to find new acoustics. This model has the same hole placement as the Tosca clarinet, enabling better intonation throughout all its registers. The bore design has also been improved, with characteristics like flexible register-crossing and free blowing, the poly-cylindrical is a popular choice among professionals. Carefully selected African blackwood provides focused, pure tones which gives the player freedom of expression and flexibility while performing.
Grenadilla Wood Body
Unlike other models, the Divine clarinet features a natural selected 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 Divine 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 Divine very nice to play. All tone holes have been undercut and combined with leather and natural cork pads, creates a great seal with better intonation and tonal character.
