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, 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, one of the R13 line.
