Buffet Crampon R13 Greenline Professional Bb Clarinet with Nickel-Plated Keys
The R13 Greenline series of clarinets follows the same manufacturing process as the 100% grenadilla R13s. Thanks to the addition of carbon fibers, Green Line clarinets withstand admirably to variations in atmospheric conditions (temperature, humidity). The risk of cracking is therefore eliminated. Created in 1994, the Greenline series of instruments has taken advantage of the excess wood remaining from the clarinet manufacturing process. This process of combining grenadilla powder with carbon fibers produces a clarinet that is greatly resistant to environmental change and helps to relieve stress on the African grenadilla wood population.
They are very popular with marching bands and with military bands as well. Touring musicians are fond of them for being very accommodating to swings in temperature and humidity from place to place.
