Amazing

The entire buying experience, from beginning to end, was amazing. The service and communication was just incredible. It feels like a lot of love and care goes into the whole process from the design, to manufacture and customer service. The instrument itself it beautifully crafted. Very playable. The keywork is responsive. Love, love, love... so in love with my new Backun. Thank you.

Still getting to know it.

Enjoying getting to know it. Over all I’m happy with it. I’m a student & still getting to grips with the upper registers. I look forward to sounding better in that area! It’s got a lightness about it which I appreciate. The silver keys are beautiful.

Great Clarinet for Beginner

I bought this for my 10-year-old son. It's his first instrument, and was recommended by a Backun Artist. Wow, what great sounds he can already get on it within the first few days. It definitely was not the squeaky sounds I remember coming from my friends' clarinets when I was in grade school. This is a wonderful first instrument for a starter!

New Clarinet

This clarinet has an amazing tone quality as well as an unique appearance. It has the tone quality of a wooden clarinet and can be used in a marching band. I was satisfied with my previous purchase of a Beta clarinet, so I knew this would be the best brand for my new Alpha.
