Research and development is both a rigorous and creative process. In collaboration with our workshops and internationally renowned clarinetists, Paul Meyer worked on the research project for developing new acoustics, resulting in the Divine clarinet.

This model benefits from having the same hole placement as the Tosca model which allows for better intonation for every register. The improved bore favors flexible register-crossing and freer blowing during the most demanding pieces.
The Divine clarinet comes with two barrels – 65mm (442hz) and 66mm (440hz) – which fit with both the Bb and the A model. The Divine is made of grenadilla wood with specific upper joint Green LinE tone-hole slots eliminating air leaks on tone-holes most prone to crack.

The carbon wire (a Buffet Crampon patent), which replaces the metal rings, makes the clarinet 60 grams lighter and thus contributes to its exceptional balance with greater vibration and freer blowing.
As with the Tosca model, The Divine clarinets are equipped with a low F correction key.
New keywork and spatulas enhance the clarinet’s ergonomics without destabilizing the musician’s capabilities.
Whereas the Tosca clarinet was the R13 bores’ top range model, the Divine features the Buffet Crampon RC bores’ latest evolution.

This new range of clarinet represents a major step forward in Buffet Crampon’s history, by fusing technical expertise with unparalleled craftsmanship in French wind instrument manufacturing.
