We were lucky enough to acquire ONE  Tosca Mopane Bb Clarinet from Buffet Crampon! This instrument was hand-selected by Buffet artist Richie Hawley of Rice University!

For 2021, Buffet Crampon is pleased and proud to present a special “mopane” edition, limited to 85 instruments based on a selection of Divine, Légende, Tosca and R13 clarinets.

What do railway ties, agricultural tools and these new clarinet models have in common? Believe it or not, these three seemingly unrelated applications all benefit from the incredible resistance offered by mopane wood from southern Africa.

As dense as Mozambique ebony (African blackwood) – from 1000 to 1300kg/m3 – mopane has warm mid brown to reddish-brown hues that harmonize wonderfully with the gleaming silver, nickel or gold plated keys of our extraordinary musical instruments.

In addition to these remarkable mechanical characteristics, the mopane wood enhances this limited series by offering a mellow and warm sound that combines softness and brilliance with a powerful and direct projection. The essence of this wood allows for the exploration of new sound colors with both pure pianissimo nuances and wide, open forte tones without any saturation.

This special series will be offered with the ligne esthétique Grand Siècle (Great Century aesthetic line) – already present on the Légende – which elegantly combines rose gold pillars and rings. Each instrument from this limited edition will receive a special engraving with its unique item number, an original signed certificate of authenticity, and will be delivered in a high-tech metallic grey and leather case.

Mopane, Poly-cylindrical bore

Green LinE (Dalbergia Melanoxyloncomposite) tones holes slots on the upper joint

Metal-capped tenons and carbon wire on barrel, lower joint and bell
