The tonal masterpiece

The first after-market clarinet bell by Backun was a revelation to those who played it: simple, refined, completely uninhibited. Developed with a custom wooden tenon ring to increase vibration, the Traditional Bell provides unparalleled response to your instrument. The Backun Voicing Groove improves the clarion register while smoothing the break between registers.

Specs: Standard or Selmer Paris fit. Adaptable to Bb and A Clarinets.

Improved my plastic clarinet's depth and tone

My plastic Yamaha YCL-255 has a fuller, smoother sound thanks to a Bakun traditional bell. I first started with a Protege cocobolo barrel and Vocalise mouthpiece which made the tone more robust. Now the cocobolo bell adds an even deeper sound and smoother transitions between registers.

Immediate Noticeable Difference

I put the bell on my Selmer clarinet and it made a huge impact in sound. Both of my colleagues in our Trio Des Anches noticed the difference: more resonance without loss of tone. I reduced rating as bell is too wide for cork on lower tenon.

The difference is notable and wonderful

I recently purchased this bell, along with a Backun barrel for my Buffet R13. The sound is so deep and warm, making my practice and playing time even more pleasurable.

Love the Bell!

Got a new bell and barrel to use on an R13. Each one alone, and especially the combination, produces a richer, warmer, more centered sound according to a blind independent 3rd-party hearing test. Nice to be able to sound better so quickly & effortlessly!
