Right. From the beginning.

Finding the right mouthpiece for beginners is no easy task, which is why we developed the Alpha Mouthpiece. Moulded from a proprietary synthetic and faced with an optimal tip opening designed to support beginning students, the Alpha represents a trifecta of value, affordability, and playability. Alpha Mouthpieces come standard with all Backun Alpha and Beta Clarinets, and are now also available as a standalone product.

Specs: Tip opening of 1.00 mm with a medium facing.

Note: All New Mouthpieces from Backun are cleaned, disinfected and sterilized for your health and safety. 

Washing Instructions: We recommend you wash your mouthpieces with warm water and mild dishwashing soap and then air dry it on a clean cloth. In classroom and group situations, we recommend the use of the Red Sterisol cleaner for its proven capability to clean, deodorize and sanitize mouthpieces. 

Please do not immerse your mouthpieces in, or clean your mouthpieces with, isopropyl, or other members of the hydroxyl group of products.

Very good Mouthpiece

The mouthpiece proved to be very responsive immediately using a Mitchel Laurie 2.5 reed for both Bb and A clarinets. I also have tried it with my C clarinet with similar success . I would say this is a great mouthpiece for both students and experienced players.

Backun Alpha Mouthpiece

This mouthpiece came with a Backun Alpha clarinet that I purchased. I use a professional level clarinet and mouthpiece for most of my playing, but I found the Alpha mouthpiece to be eminently playable right from the start, without needing any time to get used to it. With a Legere Signature #3 reed it has a stable sound and intonation, though a beginner would usually have to start with a softer reed and work his or her way up over some time. Articulation is also relatively easy. I could easily see myself using this as a backup mouthpiece if I had to, though of course would still prefer a professional model for that ideally. I wish I had started on this mouthpiece.

Absolutely Delighted

I bought the Alpha mouthpiece and care kit hoping to improve upon the very poor performance of an e-bay clarinet that cost $90.00 and had been sitting in a corner un-played for 8 years. The result was astonishingly good and I am on my way to gaining some skill with the instrument. When I am ready for a better horn I will be looking at a Backun model. The improvement with my new mouthpiece was quick and effortless.
