"A highly colourful clarinet!"
The Vintage clarinet was designed in 1996 by René Lesieux, master craftsman and responsible for instrument research and development at Buffet Crampon for over 40 years.
In creating the Vintage, Buffet Crampon especially wanted to satisfy those musicians who wish to find the same features and sound they had with their 1950's R13 clarinet.
Today, the Vintage has charmed many clarinettists over the world. They choose the Vintage for its fluid, focused tone, its homogeneity in all registers, and its easy response.
