Since 1825 Buffet has developed around the recognition of its instrument manufacture. The guarantee of such quality is the charm to a player's heart and as all products are made in either France or Germany workshops this quality is continuously reliable. All workers start as apprentices to learn everything they need to from highly skilled craftsmen, however the most important skills are dedication, passion and patience. Since birth almost every Buffet instrument has been continuously tested and developed. Listening to its players needs, Buffet has adapted the instruments to cope with the period in time.
The Divine Clarinet
Researched and developed by Paul Meyer, the Divine clarinet was brought to life while trying to find new acoustics. This model has the same hole placement as the Tosca clarinet, enabling better intonation throughout all its registers. The bore design has also been improved, with characteristics like flexible register-crossing and free blowing, the poly-cylindrical is a popular choice among professionals. Carefully selected African blackwood provides focused, pure tones which gives the player freedom of expression and flexibility while performing.
Grenadilla Wood Body
Unlike other models, the Divine clarinet features a natural selected African blackwood (otherwise known as Grenadilla) body. The benefit from this wood body is the unprecedented tone, which is favoured by all professional musicians and has been the professional choice of wood for decades.
Keys and Mechanisms
The Buffet Divine clarinet has a simple design featuring 19 keys and 6 rings. All keywork is silver or gold plated, which is long lasting and ergonomic - allowing ease of play for busy professionals. This combined with an adjustable thumb rest, makes the Divine very nice to play. All tone holes have been undercut and combined with leather and natural cork pads, creates a great seal with better intonation and tonal character.
