ARCS Clarinets

ARCS Buffet Tosca Pair

This excellent condition pair of Buffet Tosca clarinets date from 2008, when the Tosca was Buffet’s latest model. The materials used on Toscas at this time are typically superior to Tosca clarinets being produced now.

These clarinets have been given the full ARCS treatment and are performing to the highest possible standard. An additional customisation has been made to the bell of the B flat clarinet: a carbon fibre ring for extra durability. The ring is the same colour as the wood and visible only on close inspection.

Both clarinets have had moderate use, with the B flat more used than the A. The instruments come with the original carbon fibre Tosca double case and, if wanted, a hard leather Buffet single case for the B flat alone.
