  • Where it all began

    There is a reason we call this barrel the New Traditional: this is where it all began. An exotic wood body nestled between two integrated wooden rings brings unyielding response and even articulation to your clarinet. Many artists consider this barrel to be the optimal choice for solo and chamber music playing.

    Specs: Grenadilla or cocobolo wood. Compatible with Bb and A clarinets.

Made a Huge Difference

This Backun Barrel on my Clarinet has made a huge difference. I am staying in tune and the sound is fuller. I was surprised how much difference it made since I have a Yamaha wooden clarinet.

I feel much more confident with solos

I am principal clarinet in two community bands—Boulder and Longmont, Colorado—and I am thrilled to be playing on both a Backun barrel and my new cocobollo bell. Not only do a get a great sound, but I feel much more confident with solos.
