The new dimension of things

09.09.2016
As an experienced musician and instrumentalist I was recently looking for a replacement for my old E13 from Buffet Crampon.
After intensive research, I then decided to purchase the Prodige, whose drilling concept is based on the E 13.
After a prompt delivery from Thomann, the clarinet came immediately to the official test stand: All advanced clarinet pupils with partly far more valuable instruments of their own were amazed not badly.
Handling, the haptics and professional and ongoing mechanics, optics, processing quality and the surprisingly professional noble sound of this clarinet led to spontaneous highest praise.
Only the skepticism against the material of plastic clouded one or the other praise.
A few days after receipt, the instrument was already on tour (Reed 1 & 2 in a well-known musical with many clarinet stations inclusive Solopassagen).
The regular response, the beautiful sound over the entire range of the tone and the tadellose intonation (at a '= 442 Hz) as well as the effortless register changes allowed even the critical colleagues to listen.
One evening, I played the clarinet completely as it was delivered - it fulfilled all expectations. The included "Urban Play" piece is one of the best I've ever played in this segment.
For the further sound refinement, however, I now mainly use my previous professional mouthpiece - an E13 adapted bulb as well as a cup of Cocobolo wood. This makes the sound somewhat more "woodier" and the dynamics catches a distinct increase, which the clarinet in the delivery condition and for the "normal" use however does not absolutely need. It makes an absolutely high-quality impression in all respects - the more surprising is the relatively low purchase price.
I can only recommend this instrument to all ambitious clarinetists.
For me, the Prodige of Buffet Crampon is the new measure of things in this segment.

A no fault ..

16.02.2017
40 years after a first (and sad) failure I could rest my hands on a clarinet that deserves only praise, according to my weak experience. I felt like I was coming home.
Its soft and full, easily adjustable, ease of emission of the sound "piano", quality of manufacture exemplary ...
Of all the instruments (saxos, flutes) that I bought in recent years it is the most satisfactory, a value for money bluffant.
The beak is a beak of great brand, one of the most sold in its category, needless to buy another if, like me, you had planned to do it.
I have no other point of comparison but for a "study clarinet" it really has nothing "average".
Such an instrument makes you really want to play and progress again and again ... Good job Buffet Crampon!

Good Clarinet for beginners

Maria Mar, 27.03.2018
Clarinet is used by my son, he was recommended by his conservatory teacher as a good clarinet for beginners, when I asked him how long he could use it, he told me that the 4 years of basic education and two more years of professional, quality also good price, He is in first of EEB conservatory, and can not distinguish its quality, but his teacher commented that it had very good sound. We buy this brand on the recommendation of the teacher.

Buffet Crampon PRODIGE

Lotte, 13.10.2017
I am very satisfied, the sound is really good, some layout, especially at the level of the ligature, which brings better performance at sound level.
My clarinet teacher is very satisfied with this acquisition, found it really good compared to the price (on sale this summer). Good compromise before a pro clarinet.

Great price / performance ratio

Trompetenmicha, 15.01.2018
I was looking for a clarinet for my 9 year old daughter. Plastic body, it should still be in the age because of the durability, but still the instrument should intone well and the mechanics are perfect. Then you realize that it's not that easy to get a high-quality instrument with a plastic body. The most is really in the cheap sector without quality control and you can tell.

Plastic instruments from well-known manufacturers are still relatively rare and also considerably more expensive, but it was worth it to take a buffet. The instrument is perfectly processed, nothing rattles or wobbles. The intonation is perfect and the sound is full and pleasant in all situations. For me as a trumpeter actually not to be distinguished from a wooden clarinet (sorry). For a child of that age, I think there is no better solution. In a few years she can then think for herself what she wants.

Really good instrument

We bought the clarinet for our daughter. The response is very easy and the sound is very nice. Unlike other models, the low notes are very clean.

desired instrument

Gustav Ganz, 20.10.2017
With many other clarinets I had problems with the ergonomics. Here she is right and it's fun to play. Sound, processing etc. are excellent for a simple clarinet.
