Lohff & Pfeiffer comments to the model
Buffet Crampon Prestige Bass-clarinet to low Eb Mod. 1183 Buffet Crampon introduced with the Prestige Bass clarinet and bass thorn a completely redesigned new kind of harmony instruments. In cooperation with the Swiss Instrument specialist Rene Hagmann under the leadership of Rene Lesieux was the concept and production of harmony instruments revolutionizing. The often fragile and unreliable mechanism was replaced with a very ergonomical, robust and efficiant one. The intonation was greatly improved. The reduced bore size improved the dynamic range.

Until the appearance of the new Buffet Prestige bass clarinet, where this instruments just a necessary burden for orchestra players. Hard to master and problematic. The enormous development found many lovers and it is today an often seen side instrument which is enjoyed by many clarinet player. It is a very flexible and universal instrument and very popular especially among orchestra players. The sound is primarily dark, focused and carrying but it offers a wide range of colors from elegant to aggressive.

The Prestige bass l is available in unstained, polished African Blackwood or Greenline. To reduce the risk of cracking, Lohff & Pfeiffer offer the tone hole crack prevention for all wooden instruments as an option.

This model comes with the left hand Eb/Ab as well as with 3 low D keys. Some older instruments were delivered without the key but it can be added separately.

Additional Key features
1. 1.The Tenons are provided with a metal tenon-ring for protection.
2. Low C/F Correction key.
3. The Bass has a full automatic register mechanism, which improves the high register in pitch and response greatly.
4. There are many adjusting screws to facilitate the key coordination for G#, correspondence between lower and upper joint, the adjustment for the righthand keys as well as the low C/F correction.
5. In addition to that, does the Prestige also have venting adjustment screws for the left and righthand keys. A great help if you know how to use them. .
Lohff and Pfeiffer offers several alternative versions of this model. .
1. Do to the size of the instrument will the wood expand and shrink fare more than normal clarinets. As a result is keyplay very common. This will create irritating noises, wear of screws and mechanism and the instrument gets easier out of adjustment. 2. The LP-Ball bearing system eliminates all these problems perfectly lightens the mechanical action and increases the speed and resonance. See also LP-Ball-bearing system .
3. The ,LP-Pro setup is a special padding Technik, unlike on clarinet, primarily done with double impregnated leather pads, which will give the bass a very lyric sound like a cello. And increases the dynamic range as well without being dominant. See also LP-Ball-bearing system .
. 4. If you prefer a big masculine tone and quite pad noises, you should try the LP-Studio setup. The sound is big, dark, the response immediately and easy. It is even possible to adjust the response on the instrument. This is our most popular setup. See also LP-Ball-bearing system .
. 5. The LP-Soloist setup combines the Studio and ball bearing system to one. This are instruments with big tone, fast response and quite action. Perfect for Recordings as well as Orchestra playing. See also LP-Ball-bearing system .
. 6. .The and metal tenons> are another way to add response and resonance to the bass .
. 7. Since 1997 we offer the necks and bells in different versions. The most popular one is theLP Copper plated on. 20 year later Buffet adopted this option as well.
. 8. The bass is usually delivered with one standard neck. Lohff & Pfeiffer offers also a more open neck as an alternative. In case you prefer even more power, we can add a LP Sound booster to the neck or add another metal tenon between the neck and the top joint.
