Protege Cocobolo Clarinet

The quality, finish and look of my Cocobolo Backun Protege clarinet is superb and has been much admired. It has a warm, well-rounded tone which gives an added pleasure to my playing.

Wonderful

I just bought a Protege Grenadilla wood Clarinet Backun (Bb) with 18 silver keys. I am very happy with the purchase although I would have liked more with the gold finish on both the keys and the pillars but there were no stocks in the store. However, the clarinet is appreciated quite well. I have also purchased the Vocalise CG mouthpiece from Backun. The recommendation regarding the clarinet and mouthpiece has come from a close friend who is also an artist of the Backun brand, such as Ivan Villar. I recommend buying this brand.
