In 1987, Buffet Crampon, in collaboration with Jacques Lancelot, Guy Deplus, and Michel Arrignon, introduced a clarinet that would become a global reference: the Festival clarinet.

Its versatility and adaptability allowed it to quickly conquer new geographical and artistic territories. A more focused bore to enhance projection and resonance was added to our R13 family after the success of the RC Prestige and R13 Prestige clarinets. Many amateur and professional clarinettists chose this new instrument for its playability and flexibility, while also capable of playing in wind ensembles, symphony orchestras, chamber music, or solo at home for pleasure.

This year, the new Festival clarinet presents an update that benefits from all the technological advancements and innovations of recent years, both acoustically and mechanically. While intonation has been reworked to better meet the current needs of clarinettists, the vibrant core of the instrument has been preserved to always allow the versatility and accessibility that laid the foundation for its success.
