Shipping calculated at checkout

Selected exclusively for Fleming Musical Instruments & Repair customers.

Mark Nuccio, principal clarinetist of the Houston Symphony, has hand-selected this Professional Buffet Tradition Bb Clarinet exclusively for Fleming Musical Instruments & Repair customers. Mr. Nuccio play-tested many Buffet clarinets and chose this specific instrument that, in his words, “has a beautiful, dark, well-rounded sound and was carefully chosen for even scale and very good pitch.”

We know that selecting a new instrument can be a daunting task. We asked Mr. Nuccio to select clarinets for us because we want to offer our customers a line of instruments that have already been evaluated by an expert with a discerning ear and years of professional experience.

Mr. Nuccio officially began his position as Principal Clarinet with the Houston Symphony Orchestra in the 2016-17 season, after seventeen years with the New York Philharmonic. He also serves as clarinet faculty at the University of Houston’s Moore School of Music as well as clarinet faculty at Northwestern University in Chicago. Mr. Nuccio joined the New York Philharmonic in 1999 as Associate Principal and Solo E-flat Clarinetist and served as Acting Principal Clarinet with the New York Philharmonic for four years during that time. Prior to his service with the Philharmonic, he held positions with orchestras in Pittsburgh, Denver, Savannah, and Florida.

About the Tradition:

This new opus offers enhanced technical characteristics borrowed directly from the high-range model, LEGENDE, with its metal tenon caps and a low F correction key while preserving the identical acoustic attributes of the first version. Its new vertical medallion lends an elegance befitting a member of this new bore family. The natural, unstained buffed wood that make this clarinet, as well as its traditionally crafted keywork, all done in the workshops in Mantes la Ville, France, are what make this an exceptional professional clarinet, one that both literally and figuratively shines.
