At the top of Buffet’s range of clarinets is the Divine, this beautiful clarinet has exceptional stability between registers and is free blowing thanks to Paul Meyer’s new concept of acoustics.
The beautiful dark and mellow tone of the Divine is the result of fewer high harmonics in its sound. The Divine has the same tone hole placement as the Tosca, a model well respected for its excellent intonation, and so supporting stable intonation throughout all registers.
The Divine was the first model to substitute the metal rings for carbon fibre banding. This feature helps stabilise the wood and avoid cracking, it has also helped to reduce the weight of the clarinet and has enhanced its balance. Like the Legende, the Divine’s tone holes are made from Greenline, another addition which strengthens the wooden body. A right-hand vent key has been added to this model to aid intonation of low F natural.
The Divine features synthetic cork joints; a material that returns to its original shape after being used, meaning it lasts longer than the traditional natural cork joints. The synthetic cork joints ensure the clarinet seals completely.
Buffet has been producing clarinets since 1825 and are well respected within the industry. Buffet clarinets are commonplace in orchestras and ensembles across the world.
