BUFFET HAGMANN RC PRESTIGE A CLARINET, £2995
This very fine, rare, and unique, customised Rene Hagmann Buffet RC A Prestige clarinet is a commission sale for Clarinets Direct.
We are fortunate to count many of the leading clarinet players in the world amongst our clientele,
one such is Pedro Franco, who commissioned the work on this clarinet from the great Swiss inventor
and designer, Rene Hagmann. Buffet employed Hagmann as a consultant in the 1990's to
develop both their Bass clarinet design, and their new wide bore Basset Horn.
Thse models were a great success with players Worldwide. It is such a pity that cost cutting at
Buffet caused the cessation of manufacture of the Hagmann Basset Horn. The modern
Buffet Basset Horn is a much less successful acoustic design than when originally launched
in the 1990's.
This RC Prestige A is a radical and vast improvement on the standard Buffet production model,
it was used to successfully audition for the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra against almost 600
other clarinettists. The instrument has been played in many orchestras both in Europe and here in
the UK. The reason for the sale is that the owner now has another pair of Hagmann influenced
customised Buffet RC Prestige clarinets.
