<< Of course, Buffet's competitors have not been the only one's
involved in this process , but Buffet itself, and even Robert
Carree....whose own last designs, which I am sure he considered superior to
his earlier designs (and so do the French) , were put in the Buffet RC (the
RC standing for his name).
As someone who is now completely independent of manufacturers,
all I hope to do is encourage all makers to make their instruments play,
tune and sound better, so that clarinetists may be increasingly free to be
as expressive and spontaneous as those who play other instruments which
are, for whatever reasons, a bit further down the road regarding their
acoustical evolution and ultimate perfection.
Anyone who has ears to hear and has experienced the frustration of
trying to master the clarinet ought to agree that the clarinet has a way to
The Happiest of New Years to you, Francois. >>

Of Course what is 5 years or more in the life of the clarinet I just tried to
give the exact date of the beginning of the production of the R13 for the one
who ask me when their clarinet was made. We started the numerotation in 55 . I
don't understand what you are trying to say with all your statements about
Buffet and Robert Caree changing themself the design of the instrument. Of
course we are listenning and we are working in colaboration with a LOT of
musicians who know how play clarinet .(this is my opinion) .Michel
Arrignon,Jacque Lancelot.Guy Deplus.Michel Moragues.Paul Meyer.Phillipe
Cupper.Stanley Drucker.John Manasse and all the other clarinet player who find
their needs with the Buffet Clarinet.
I am not trying to sell anything here I am just tired to ear and read that
Buffet doesn't know how make clarinet.So just make a better clarinet and be
very succesfull with it .

Musically Yours
