The name Robert Car'e is legendary in the field of clarinet design. He is the person responsible for so many advances in the acoustics of the instrument such as the original development and design of the R13 that he designed and created in 1955, and all improvements that have since been made to the R13 and all other Buffet Clarinets.
In 1974 he decided to design a better clarinet and used the R13, as it was at the time, as a starting point. Robert Car'e re-designed and improved upon the design that he developed in 1955 by changing the bore/barrel dimensions (but still retaining the same basic idea behind the poly-cylindrical bore), tone hole size and tone hole placement, as well as fully undercut tone holes which improve tone, response and intonation in all registers. The result is a clarinet with a richer, more resonant tone, better intonation and greater projection and this makes the Buffet RC Clarinet ideal for the soloist, chamber musician and the orchestral clarinettist.
Buffet was so pleased with the finished product that they named it after him, hence the name RC (Robert Care). Set-up by our technicians & tested and checked by our professional players before it becomes available for sale.
