The Buffet Crampon 1180 student bass clarinet was entirely redesigned to offer young students and amateur players an instrument providing thrilling sensations in the lowest notes which are the foundations of harmony.
The 1180 is sure to suit every musical style.
This clarinet facilitates the jump between intervals thanks to its new and reconceptualized simplified register key system.
Its wide, homogeneous sound palette and extremely fluid legato allow the musician to experiment with every acoustic or technical idea imaginable.
As the only student bass clarinet made from selected and treated grenadilla wood from Mozambique, delivered in a compact, lightweight case, the new Buffet Crampon 1180 stands out from all others thanks to the quality of its manufacture, its remarkable intonation, timbre and overall comfort. It sets itself as the global standard for student bass clarinets.
