The Buffet Crampon Group is patronised by musicians all over the world. It is the world’s top professional clarinet maker and the last remaining French bassoon maker. We put this company driven by excellence, craftsmanship and tradition under the lens.
Prestige at the very core of craftsmanship
Buffet Crampon is part of French heritage with its exemplary manufacturing of high prestige clarinets, oboes, saxophones and bassoons played by professional musicians.
The Group has developed around 10 brands since 1825, all of which bear witness to century-old expertise. The Group’s reed instruments are played by all music lovers be they solo musicians, symphony orchestra players or music school students.
“Rhapsody for talents” composed by Giancarlo Castro d’Adonna who was commissioned by Buffet Crampon, won the 2013 Global Music Awards. The musical competition is of great prestige and pays tribute to independent musicians all over the world.
Buffet Crampon exports 94% of its production and with good reason, as the brand has 4 manufacturing workshops in Europe and 6 sites across the world. In addition to its three manufacturing workshops in France and Germany. The brand has its own showrooms in Paris, New York City, Munich and Tokyo.
As they are sensitive to tradition and excellence, Buffet Crampon and François Rénier Paris have developed a partnership to enable them to combine the art of instrument making and the art of leatherwork.
