The Prestige Basset A Clarinet, made by Buffet, is a horn with great sound and even keywork. The Basset Clarinet's lower joint results in an even sound and better accuracy in the low register, especially on the notes B and F. The Basset Clarinet is created from unstained grenadilla wood and hand crafted in the finest French tradition.The A clarinet is considered by many the instrument for which Mozart wrote his great clarinet concerto K622. The clarinet sound of the 18th century has been recaptured in the Buffet Crampon Prestige Basset Clarinet. Descending to low C, this clarinet is especially designed to perform the Mozart Concerto in its original version. Contemporary composers have even included it in their own works.
