Project your low notes with power and precision.

The Buffet 1193 Prestige Low C Bass Clarinet combines high-quality craftsmanship with innovative design for bass clarinetists seeking an instrument that can keep up with their ambitions. The full grenadilla wood body resonates with your breath to produce a rich, focused tone across its range down to low C. Silver-plated keys feel natural under your fingers and stand up to heavy use, while the adjustable neck allows for precise intonation.
Robust, Resonant Grenadilla Wood Construction
The 1193 Prestige gets its robust, resonant tone from select grenadilla wood, carefully cured and crafted into an elegantly curved body. Grenadilla wood is prized for woodwind instruments because of how it vibrates with your breath to produce a warm, centered tone with plenty of projection. The dense grain also provides stability, allowing Buffet to create a lightweight body that won't compromise on tone.

Silver-Plated Keys Built to Last
The silver-plated keys on the 1193 Prestige feel smooth and responsive under your fingers during even the most technically demanding passages. Silver plating helps prevent oxidation and wear, keeping the keys securely sealed and the key mechanisms flowing freely. Thoughtfully placed, ergonomically shaped keys require minimal hand movement, reducing fatigue during long rehearsals and performances.

Precisely Adjustable Neck
An adjustable neck allows you to modify the 1193 Prestige's intonation to suit your playing style and preferences. Make subtle tweaks to the neck angle and length to achieve optimal tuning across all registers, especially in the challenging lowest notes. The neck's streamlined shape fits comfortably in your hand, with well-placed keys that fall naturally under your fingers.

Premium Accessories for Care and Transport
Buffet includes premium accessories to help you get the most from your 1193 Prestige. A lightweight case with padded backpack straps makes transporting your bass clarinet convenient and comfortable. A professional mouthpiece tailored to the instrument's specifications helps you achieve a full, resonant tone right from your first note. Care products like bore oil and cleaning swabs help keep your bass clarinet in peak playing condition for years to come.
