Outstanding instrument!!!

I was truly amazed as to how well this instrument plays. First and foremost...the tone...you can't tell that this is made of a synthetic material versus wood. The intonation, the keywork, the altissimo....absolutely incredible. This instrument is a MUST for any player who has to be outside battling the elements. This blows the competition out of the water!!!

Clarinet looks good upon arrival

The clarinet was rented for my child's school band, which recommended an instrument dealer that works with Backun. It hasn't been played yet but looks good upon arrival. No missing parts or defects. Has a nice, hardy case to go with it.

Backun Alpha my first clarinet

I played a cheap clarinet for two weeks before I ordered a Backun. The Alpha is such a good instrument compared to the first one. It has a really nice tone and is easy to play.

Amazing

The entire buying experience, from beginning to end, was amazing. The service and communication was just incredible. It feels like a lot of love and care goes into the whole process from the design, to manufacture and customer service. The instrument itself it beautifully crafted. Very playable. The keywork is responsive. Love, love, love... so in love with my new Backun. Thank you.
