Reinventing The Clarinet One Piece at a Time

For a clarinet to play as an extension of your soul, each piece of wood must be painstakingly selected, each tonehole masterfully crafted, each key evenly balanced and each pad perfectly sealed, all in pursuit of this: The Backun Bb Clarinet.

  • Precision keywork fit on a unique proprietary posting system manufactured in-house for long-term reliability and true touch sensitivity
  • Backun Modular Posting System designed to make key fitting and refitting precise and effortless
  • Combination carbon fiber and titanium upper and lower joints for uncompromising fit and seal 
  • Sculpted inline trill key design with enlarged finger buttons and an independent guide system to maintain superior alignment
  • Unique thumb rest that is fully adjustable by the player – aiding in correct hand positioning, comfort and stability

Available in either Cocobolo or Grenadilla woods, with Gold or Silver plated keywork, each Backun Bb Clarinet comes with two (2) Fatboy Barrels in 66mm and 65mm lengths and one (1) Traditional Bell.
