Overview

An excellent foundation for a woodwind section, the Contra Alto clarinet creates beautiful textures when mixed with bassoons and bass clarinets.

The Buffet Crampon Prestige Contra-Alto is a high quality clarinet made from grenadilla wood with undercut tone holes. The result is a beautiful tone and quick response. Keys and posts are power forged, pre-plated in copper, and silver-plated which creates strong keys that will shine for years to come. To accomplish a clear tone and sound throughout the range, a double octave key with high Bb and half hole speaker vent are employed. The rich, dark sound of the Buffet Crampon Prestige Contra-Alto Clarinet blends beautifully within a clarinet section.

Features

  • Half hole speaker vent: Better emission of the F# without noise
  • High quality Grenadilla wood: Beautiful, durable wood, Produces excellent tone
  • Undercut tone holes: Improves tone and faster response
