A reimagined student bass clarinet that sings.

The Buffet Crampon 1180 Student Bass Clarinet is crafted to inspire young musicians. Built from treated grenadilla wood, its tone is rich, resonant and distinctive. Buffet Crampon redesigned the keywork to simplify transitions between intervals, facilitating fluid legato and freedom of expression across the instrument's range. Silver-plated keys and blue steel springs provide a responsive, familiar feel, while an adjustable thumbrest keeps all players comfortable.

Grenadilla Wood Body Resonates with Tone
As the only student bass clarinet constructed from hand-selected grenadilla wood, the 1180 produces a tone that sings. While synthetic student instruments can only approximate the woody warmth of professional models, the 1180 delivers authentic tone from the start. Students and amateurs alike will appreciate its resonant, rounded sound.

Reimagined Keys Enable Expressive Play
Thoughtfully redesigned keys make the 1180 remarkably easy to play. Its simplified register key system facilitates transitions between intervals, enabling fluid legato and dynamic expression across the instrument's range. Silver-plated keys and blue steel springs provide a light, responsive mechanism that feels instantly familiar.

Adjustable Thumbrest Keeps All Players Comfortable
An adjustable thumbrest allows musicians of all sizes to find an optimal hand position and maintain comfort during extended practice or performance. Ergonomic keys and a streamlined bell-to-barrel angle further enhance playability, putting the instrument's capabilities directly under the musician's control.

Compact, Lightweight Case Provides Perfect Portability
A compact, lightweight case allows students to transport their 1180 with ease. Durable yet lightweight, it keeps the instrument safe from damage without adding extra weight.
