Buffet Crampon: A Symphony of Heritage and Excellence
A Symphony of Heritage and Excellence
Buffet Crampon is a name synonymous with high-quality woodwind instruments. With roots dating back to 1825, this French brand has set industry standards for nearly two centuries. Known for its craftsmanship, Buffet Crampon clarinets are made from the finest African Blackwood (Grenadilla) and undergo a special drying process.
Each piece of wood is selected based on strict criteria like density, grain, and resonance qualities. Buffet Crampon artisans then employ a combination of state-of-the-art machinery and handcrafting techniques to shape and finish each instrument. Their attention to detail extends to the keys, which are either silver or nickel-plated and are assembled to provide flawless mechanical action. The result is an instrument that not only looks like a masterpiece but plays like one too.
