Full conservatory system with extended keywork

Woodwind specialists all love the extended keywork of the BC4062 Prodige. For starters, it touts a full conservatory system with all the keywork you’d expect to come with it. This includes the left-hand F key for playing fast lines that are difficult with the fork F fingering. The Bb resonance key on the bell also offers more stable tuning and pitch clarity. Other key features include three semi-automatic octave keys, plus double G# and Eb keys, which make playing in the upper range a piece of cake. Finally, the Prodige sports additional trill keys for C#, double D, and low B/C#. All this liberating keywork lets you perform more demanding music and put your skills on display without any restraint.

Grenadilla wood body with Luracast resin lining

As with any of their instruments, Buffet Crampon only uses the finest grenadilla wood for their oboes. All of the wood undergoes a meticulous selection and aging process to ensure the best musical qualities. Then, using a combination of traditional and modern techniques, Buffet treats the wood to enhance its sonic properties and structural durability. Once built, the inside bore is treated with a Luracast resin lining to promote stability and prevent the oboe from cracking. The result is an exquisite-sounding oboe that sticks with you for the long haul.

Buffet Crampon: a tradition of excellence

With an impressive legacy spanning two centuries, Buffet Crampon is one of the world’s most respected and popular makers of woodwind instruments. Buffet Crampon has greatly influenced modern woodwinds through several significant innovations, including the adaptation of Theobald Boehm’s flute fingering system to the clarinet and extending the lower range of the saxophone to Bb. Today, Buffet Crampon continues its tradition of crafting superior quality woodwinds for every level of player, and the company’s clarinets remain the instrument of choice for many top professionals, including Michel Arrignon, Sharon Kam, and Martin Fröst.
