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).
The CSG is an entirely new kind of clarinet. Yamaha reanalyzed and reevaluated literally every single design specification until they had created an instrument that harks back to the tonal purity and natural resonance of aged grenadilla wood. There's less metal used on the CSG, so the whole body reverberates with sound, while the new bore, barrel, and bell shapes offer a tone of breathtaking richness and depth. The sound is warm yet has a clear focused center surrounded by a wealth of overtones, resulting in extraordinary beauty and expressivity. And the tone projects with remarkable ease in even the largest concert halls. There's never been a clarinet like this before.
Added to the "L" models of the G Series Custom Clarinets, the low E/F pitch correction helps bring a stabilized pitch center to that particular register.
