  • The evolution of Backun

    The Lumière takes the clarinet to a level of breathtaking clarity and focus from the highest altissimo down through the low register. Less is more, as the Lumière flaunts European flair with uncompromising intonation and fluidity. Completely redesigned from the bell up, and the first clarinet to feature the new Backun Scale, this custom clarinet is a perfect match for those who desire the highest quality playing experience in a more traditional French-style instrument. Arching inline trill keys serve both form and function, moving the complex sculpted tone holes out of the waterline, while newly designed touch pieces offer a luxurious, refined feel. Among the finishing touches, custom leather pads make their first appearance on a Backun Clarinet, providing artists with unmatched response and feel.

The Lumière - Amazing craftsmanship

I had the opportunity to try the cocobolo and granadilla Lumières. Although I preferred the granadilla version, I was amazed by the consistency of intonation in both clarinets. It’s very rare that you can get an amazing clarinet without trying many before finding a good one. The tone is beautifully clear, centered, and consistent throughout all registers. The throat notes sounds resonant and in tune without the need of resonant alternate fingers. Playing through all registers comes effortlessly and with the perfect amount of resistance. After trying various top models of a mayor brand without success in finding a great clarinet I have been fortunate to find in the first try the most amazing and beautiful instrument. Thanks Sean for suggesting the Lumière to me.
