Buffet Crampon have created a modern and innovative material called 'Green Line' after becoming aware of the importance of conserving the world supply of precious wood, such as ebony.
Green Line is made by blending 95% of ebony powder with carbon fibre. It has the same acoustic qualities as ebony and is suited to the high demands of today's musician because of its stability in all playing environments.
The addition of carbon fibres means that Green Line clarinets are not susceptible to variations in atmospheric conditions; the risk of cracking is therefore eliminated.
