Worth the price

The shortest C barrel is just what my Buffet C clarinet needs to bring the pitch up and make intonation better overall.

Great workmanship, quality and customer service!

Prompt professional service during purchase and shipping. It turned out that my clarinet and mouthpiece required a different bore size, but Backun’s staff handled the return with a lightning quick full refund and no hassles. I will definitely be purchasing from Backun again.

Hi Karen, If the bore needs to be made bigger for you we may be able to assist you, but please note this adjustment would make the product final sale. Of course, once it's been made we can't make it smaller, though! If you'd like to follow up with us at sales@backunmusical.com maybe we can find a solution that will work for you? Sean

troy C barrel

I take this thing and play complete pieces with it. It becomes a handicap to overcome. It makes my other playing more in tune.

I recommend this product

Everything I had sought in an upgrade barrel

Fixed all issues with my budget, hard rubber C clarinet’s depth, resistance and response-freer blowing, bigger/ deeper sounding and tunes better than stock hard rubber barrel. Altissimo notes speak much more easily with the grenadilla Backun barrel. (Beautifully finished wood)

Better than Stock

The throat tones of my C clarinet are now in tune. Much better than my stock barrel.

Much improved throat tones

I am very happy with my Backun Grenadilla barrel. For me, it significantly improves the timbre - especially of the throat tones - of my Ridenour C clarinet.
