Buffet Senzo Alto Saxophone – London Arrival *25th June 2013*
Howarth of London would like to welcome you to attend the arrival of the new Buffet Senzo Alto Saxophone!
With the launch of the Senzo, Buffet Crampon announces the rebirth of their professional saxophone range. Senzo, which means ancestor in Japanese, combines Buffet Crampon’s tradition of musical excellence with a sensual and modern approach.
Inspired by the legendary Super Dynaction and S1 models, this new saxophone retains the brand’s distinctive round, sensual and emotional sound with major improvements.
Special attention has been given to the neck’s bore to increase the flexibility of play throughout the saxophone’s register. An optional bore with increased projection and a lighter timbre is also available along with a silver or gold finish. A magnificent hand-made floral engraving brings out the pure copper used in manufacturing the instrument’s body.
“The ‘Senzo’ is an exquisite classical saxophone. The fluidity of the key work, secure intonation and the variety of finishes offer an instrument that will appeal to all.”
Olivia Wild – Howarth of London commenting on trying the ‘Senzo’ at Frankfurt Musikmesse 2013
We look forward to seeing you at Howarth of London where there will be instruments available to try and you will have the opportunity to speak to Buffet Representatives directly involved with the production and design of this new instrument!
Backun Protégé Clarinets
Backun Musical Services’ Protégé Clarinet is here in the UK! – In December 2012, Morrie Backun visited Howarth of London to display his range of clarinets to players from all over the country, Europe and beyond! Part of that range is the Protégé clarinet.
“The perfect fit for students, amateurs and aspiring professionals. An affordable professional instrument, the Protégé Bb Clarinet is the next logical step between beginner and Artist models.”
The Backun Protégé Clarinet is available in Grenadilla or Cocobolo wood with a variety of key finishes including Gold, Rose Gold and Silver Plate. These clarinets compliment the Backun range we stock here at Howarth, maintaining the quality of the professional clarinets at an affordable price. We have these instruments readily available to try and we look forward to seeing you!

Buffet ICON Barrel
The new Buffet ICON Barrels available here at Howarth of London
The 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.
The barrels have three different ring finishes, each offering distinct responses to the player.
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.
Black Nickel seems to stand halfway between the two, producing a more compact effect.
Yamaha CSG III Clarinets at Howarth of London
The CSG III represents the latest incarnation of Yamaha’s renowned line of professional clarinets. Assisted by the international soloist Michael Collins, this model aims to allow artists total freedom of expression.
Inspired by German Oehler system clarinets, the CSGIII features a slightly plump barrel and thick-walled bell which aid in the production of a deep tone, rich in harmonics and with a clear projection. Ergonomically-designed new key shapes offer the player a comfortable and natural touch, with the option of either silver or Hamilton (Gold) plating allowing for further customisation. Both cork and leather pads are optimally placed to maximise on their tonal quality, touch and functionality, and new tonehole designs allow for an even intonation and a uniformed response throughout the full range of the instrument. An optional intonation correction mechanism, again inspired by the Oehler system and original to Yamaha, controls the low E and F notes. This system assures natural finger control, excellent feel and playability.
In all, the Yamaha CSG III stands at the pinnacle of contemporary clarinet design. The collaboration between international performing artists and the unparalleled expertise of Yamaha’s design team has produced a clarinet of breath taking facility and possibility.
The full range of finishes are available to try here in our London showrooms.
