Buffet Crampon Model BC1131LV Clarinet in Bb "VINTAGE"
- Customer Reviews (0)
The Vintage clarinet was developed and perfected by René Lesieux in 1996. René Lesieux was a Master instrument maker with Buffet Crampon for more than 40 years. The Vintage, as its name implies, brings to mind the influences and colours of the 1950s.
Today it is widely appreciated for its fluid and focused tone, and its homogeneity and ease of response.
The Vintage in A has a specific bore that provides unrivalled suppleness and remarkable accuracy in all registers, coupled with a particularly warm sound.
(The North American versions of the Vintage clarinet do not have the left-hand E-flat/A-flat lever; model numbers are BC1131V-2-0 for B-flat, BC1231V-2-0)
