Article number: BC172320U
Availability: In stock

The basset horn was magnificently adopted by Mozart, and the great contemporary composers, including Boulez and Stockhausen, have written music for this instrument, whose sound is balanced and luminous.

These remarkably designed instruments are made of natural African Blackwood and finished with the Buffet Crampon Prestige finish.

The modern basset horn, designed with all of the perfected elements of the Boehm system developed by Buffet Crampon, enables clarinettists to play concertos and quintets as they were conceived and imagined by Mozart.
