  • Where it all began

    There is a reason we call this barrel the Traditional: this is where it all began. An exotic wood body nestled between two integrated wooden rings brings unyielding response and even articulation to your clarinet. Many artists consider this barrel to be the optimal choice for solo and chamber music playing.

    Specs: Grenadilla or cocobolo wood. Compatible with Bb and A clarinets.

Backun Studio Traditional Barrel Review

I am a doubler and a music educator. A few years ago I purchased two Backun Studio Traditional barrels in Grenadilla (65mm) and Cocobolo (66mm) for my Buffet R13 clarinet. Both barrels make the clarinet feel more free blowing and have a great connection between notes. I use the 66mm Cocobolo as my main barrel - to me, it sounds warm with a lot of resonance. The grenadilla feels similar with a bit more brightness and ping to the sound. I recently picked up a wood Jupiter clarinet as a second clarinet to leave at my school and the Backun Traditional Grenadilla pairs up rather well with that instrument. I have owned and/or tried Buffet Moennig, Buffet Chadish, and Deg synthetic barrels. In my opinion, The Backun Traditional barrels are much better than the other brands and actually fit my playing style better than the Moba. Highly recommended!

Great Barrel

I bought a studio traditional Cocobolo wood barrel a few years ago, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. In live with this barrel and hoping to buy a bell during this sale as well.
