Better than Stock

The throat tones of my C clarinet are now in tune. Much better than my stock barrel.

Much improved throat tones

I am very happy with my Backun Grenadilla barrel. For me, it significantly improves the timbre - especially of the throat tones - of my Ridenour C clarinet.

Cocobola C Barrel

Owning and being impressed with the Fat Boy Cocobola Barrel for my Protege Bb Clarinet I decided to opt for The Backun C Barrel for my C Clarinet as the standard issue that came with the clarinet was pretty average. I am so glad I purchased this barrel as I have never looked back since. It seems to help the clarinet play in tune and with more intonation as C Clarinets can be a little fiddly to tune. I have no regrets and love Backun Products as owning the Protege and Alpha Clarinets the workmanship is second to none and the service from Backun is first class. I only wish they were based here in Scotland as I would readily swop our whisky for a good clarinet company. I would like to give a big thanks to Sean for taking my order and meticulously processing and expediting it asap. It really was a pleasure to deal with Backun. And how can i forget the man himself. A big thanks Moray for churning out fantastic clarinets which are a pleasure to play. I would certainly deal again with Backun for my clarinets and accessories. Thanks guys.

Huge difference

I recently purchased a Patricola C7 C clarinet. The clarinet played fine with the stock barrels. I decided to take a chance and order a Backun cocobola barrel based mostly on the success I have had with the MoBa clarinet barrels. The newest of my barrels by Morrie Backun has not been a disappointed. The barrel improved the intonation, articulation, and projection. The warmth and power of cocobola is always a great perk.
