"In the modern age of inspired technological inventions and craving for constant changes, there comes a breakthrough in otherwise traditional clarinet design. The Backun MoBa Cocobolo Clarinet with Gold Keys is tailor-made for my research needs and contributes to my knowledge of contemporary clarinet melisma and ornamentation techniques. During the manufacturing process, additional key-work adaptations are turning this state-of-the-art instrument into the iClarinet. This is the only instrument that literally grows in sync with my own path of discovery. The application of diverse and novel inventions throughout the variety of Backun clarinets enables me to pass this experience on to the talented and aspiring clarinetists of the future."
