Buffet Crampon Model BC1223 Basset Clarinet in A "Prestige"
- Customer Reviews (0)
Anton Stadler is probably the first clarinettist to have played the instrument that is the precursor of the A basset and basset horn. Its range was greater by a major third toward the lower notes and its sound was unique and sweet. This clarinet is in A but descends to a low C.
The basset horn, in the same spirit, is an instrument touched by magic and in many shades. It was magnificently adopted by Mozart, and the great contemporary composers, including Boulez and Stockhausen, have written music for this instrument, whose sound is balanced and luminous.
These remarkably designed instruments are made of grenadilla wood and finished with the Buffet Crampon Prestige finish.
The modern basset clarinet, designed with all of the perfected elements of the Boehm system developed by Buffet Crampon, enables clarinettists to play concertos and quintets as they were conceived and imagined by Mozart.
