Developed by Robert Carree in 1975, the RC Clarinet features a modified poly-cylindrical bore design, endowing it with a dark, round, and colorful tone.

The RC Prestige is one of the top models in the RC bore family of clarinets. The Grenadilla wood is carefully selected for its acoustic and aesthetic qualities and the wood is carefully polished and left in its natural color. The mechanics of the RC Prestige are prepared and finished with great precision: the tone holes are undercut according to Buffet Crampon specifications, and the keywork is carefully assembled and adjusted by expert technicians.

Features include:

-RC bore design
-Unstained premium African blackwood
-Egg shaped cut-out inside bell (for low register response)
-Silver plated keys
-Left hand Eb/Ab key
-Metal-capped tenons
-Leather covered attache case with combination locks

All of our professional clarinets are hand-selected at either the Buffet Crampon headquarters in the US, or the factory in France. After hand-selection, the instruments receive a complete set-up in our repair shop. This includes: resurfacing tone holes, pad upgrades, pad reseating and leveling, key fitting, and tension adjustments. Once the set-up is complete, our clarinet repair technician will play-test the instrument to ensure everything is in good working order from a repair standpoint, and then one of our clarinetists will play-test it to ensure everything is good from a player's perspective. We do this at no additional charge for you (work is valued at $450).
