    GREENLINE is made of a composite material that is a mix of wood and metal, and it is designed to be a more affordable option for clarinetists.

    The ICON barrel has been designed to fit all Bb or A clarinet models, whatever their bore or their origin.
    It forms part of the SOUND DESIGN collection, which includes high-end accessories combining acoustic performance and aesthetic subtlety.


    The elegance of the body and the finely worked rings give this new barrel a distinctive style. The bore and the silhouette are the culmination of the latest acoustical research carried out [by] Buffet Crampon on its family of clarinets

    It enhances the qualities while preserving the characteristics of each of the brand's models. Responsiveness, sound projection and definition of articulation are greatly facilitated by the new ICON barrel, contributing to the player's comfort.

    Technical Characteristics
    This new line of Buffet Crampon barrels joins the series of barrels by Chadash and Moennig and belongs to the same family of conical bores, while standing out with its sophisticated and different proportions.

    Apart from its inverse conical bore, its outer shape has been particularly refined. The carefully selected use of materials for the rings, and the finishes offered (gold, silver or black nickel) have a notable influence on the sonority and the sensation felt by the musician.

    Acoustic Characteristics
    Variations of clarinets and barrels are practically infinite. ICON barrels are extremely supple in every register and the different finishes produce interesting acoustical variations. Gold produces more high harmonics and timbre, silver frees up and rounds out the sound, and black nickel seems to stand halfway between the two, producing a more compact effect. Another advantage: the conical bore can, if necessary, improve intonation of twelfths which can sometimes be problematic, depending on the balance of mouthpiece and reed. Lastly, the sound projection is excellent in proportion to a reasonable expenditure of air.
