Selmer Lumiere Barrel

I've only had this barrel a short time, but it works well with my Centered Tone Selmer.

Change was Immediate

Very surprised at how quickly this barrel assisted with further centering tone quality, making it much easier as well as more consistent across the range of the instrument. Also helped with consistency in intonation. Great product!

True Freedom

The Lumiere really exceeded my expectations. It has the freedom of the Fatboy barrel combined with a timbre that has an excellent core to the sound. It is definitely an adjustment for me coming from playing on a more resistant setup, but I think this barrel really has gifted me the potential to play more delicately than I've ever been able to before. The tradeoff is that it is a little harder to control the freedom (since I'm not used to it, it may very well be a different experience for you if you're already on a less resistant setup) but over time I imagine this barrel will become a staple for orchestral playing, as its projection and clarity are top-notch. It also really helps clear up those stuffy throat tones as well. Thank you, Backun!

Backun barrels

The Lumiere barrels work so well on my Buffet RC Prestige. The Moba produces a sweet very focussed tone and the grenadilla 66.5 mm is wonderful. Both are so even in sound, very focussed and so responsive.

Nice tone

The Lumiere brought new sound to an older clarinet.

Lumiere Barrel

The Lumiere barrel provides a brighter, lighter sound to my clarinet.
