  • Where it all began

    There is a reason we call this barrel the New 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.

Very responsive

The responsiveness of this barrel is very good. All notes speak with ease, especially going over the break.

New Traditional Barrel

Indeed it transformed my clarinet sound warmer and brighter with less effort. Even the slightest tone can be produced with slightest effort. Really cool barrel to upgrade a student grade clarinet.

Having fun playing again!

My Buffet R13 always played flat. Went to 64mm barrel instead of stock 65mm. Clarinet plays in tune now and the tone improvement is palpable!

Sweet sound but not a great fit on Yamaha 650

Not a snug fit on my Yamaha 650, but I'm using it anyway because of the full, warm sound.

Hi Larry! Please consider re-corking your clarinet's tenon. Sometimes this is required when switching to a new barrel. Thank you for choosing Backun.
