Paired with the Backun Eb Bell, this barrel really tames the savage beast.

Best investment ever

This barrel makes it possible to use Bb clarinet reeds and it has made my tone and intonation much better. It has made me overall more confident and comfortable playing such a difficult breed of clarinet.

Grenadilla Eb Cutback Barrel

It made a big difference. I was already playing on another Backun barrel, but I had a newer Selmer Eb clarinet that required a longer barrel. This new barrel, specific to my set-up, played a pivotal role in making my solos comfortable. Even the flute players commented! Thanks again!

Love the Eb cutback barrel

I’m a huge fan of Backun products and have a MoBa barrel and MoBa bell on my Bb and A clarinets and absolutely love the Eb cutback barrel. Not only do I get that gorgeous Backun sound, but now I can use my favorite Rue 56 reeds. Big thanks !

Barrel Improves Intonation and Evens out Tone

My new Backun Eb soprano clarinet barrel improves intonation and evens out the tone throughout all clarinet registers. I love that I can easily use Bb soprano reeds which helps me to blend better with the clarinet section.

It was exactly what I needed

I found myself in a situation where I was playing quite flat and wanted to try a shorter barrel (mine was 45mm); I have a Selmer 9 eefer, which does not fit most of the after market barrels. I ordered a Selmer version and a non-Selmer version, and the Selmer one fit perfectly first time on the horn and fixed my intonation issues. Yay!
