Demo Alpha Bb Clarinet

Size Guide

Advance your passion

Originally designed for Backun Artists to perform with outdoors, the Alpha Clarinet represents years of research and development into the ideal synthetic material. Today, professionals and students alike can count on the Alpha for performances where a wooden instrument might not be ideal.

With its stable, resonant, and light weight synthetic body, durable key work, and water-resistant black Valentino pads, the Alpha is at home in the classroom, on the marching field, or on the concert stage. The Alpha plays amazingly well right out of the box, and its comfortable ergonomic keywork and adjustable thumb rest ensure many hours of enjoyable practice, and performance, are ahead.

Optional: Left Hand Eb Lever.

Includes: One Alpha Barrel, One Alpha Bell, Mouthpiece kit (mouthpiece, ligature, cap), Custom Case, Swab and Cork Grease.
