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.

Immediate Noticeable Difference

I put bell on my Selmer St Louis...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.

Pre-owned Traditional Bell improved my plastic clarinet's depth and tone

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

Traditional Bell + Tone Ring

I purchased the cocobolo bell w/ tone ring and swapped out my stock Buffet bell on my R13 Prestige. I am so pleased with the added depth of sound and fluidity between ranges -- I didn't believe a bell could really do that!

Backun Traditional Bells

These bells play wonderfully and fixed an intonation issue I had while using my stock Buffet R13 bell.
