The Buffet Tosca is a much sought after instrument and rarely comes onto the market second hand and in such good condition. The Clarinet will be stripped, cleaned and serviced, this will be done to strict industry guidelines. Especially with corona-virus in our thoughts.
The clarinet was manufactured in 2008 and had been played regularly, but cared for meticulously. All our used instruments are sold with a 12 month warranty. This covers pads, corking, springing and general setting up. Should any of the joints unfortunately split, this will be repaired under our warranty but not replaced.
The clarinet is available for a trial, so please let us know if this is of interest to you and we will prepare the instrument for your visit.
Here is what Buffet have to say about the Tosca Clarinet:
Fortified by its elegance and incomparable style, the Tosca clarinet, designed by Michel Arrignon, is the fruit of extensive experience and innovation.
One of Buffet Crampon’s greatest strengths is its capacity for developing new instruments in close cooperation with the best-known musicians of the French school of wind instruments. Musicians we have worked with include Romain Guyot, Pascal Moraguès and Guy Deplus.
Endowed with rich harmony and a unique sonority, the Tosca clarinet’s timbre and fullness are exceptional.
Its ease of response and flexibility and its high level of comfort are qualities that distinguish it from other clarinets, and that constitute the very essence of this clarinet, part of the R13 bore family.
