My first wooden clarinet

"My Beta arrived today - I hadn't been able to get to a shop to try it, so I've had my fingers crossed it would be a good step up from my plastic clarinet. The wood is so beautiful. I love the black pads and the chunky bell. Playing it for the first time it sounds rich and expressive and pingy and powerful. It's in tune. I know you have to break a wooden clarinet in gently and I was sad to have to stop and pop him back in his (pretty cute backpack) case. I can't wait to get to know him better. "

I've played Buffet E-12F, E-13 and Uebel Classic Clarinets, but they do not compare to the Backun Beta!

This is my first big upgrade in Clarinet, with the intent to see me through my musical career (understanding that I will not pursue music as a career, however it is certainly a massive hobby) all the way through to my AMEB Grade 8 exams and beyond. This instrument performs beautifully, with ease in achieving notes in the altissimo range. It's sophisticated tone brings elegance in band and solo performances, and it is a highly responsive instrument. The keywork is beyond impressive as it fits comfortably beneath my hands. The inclusion of the additional left hand Eb/D# lever was a very pleasant surprise for an instrument within this price range. All round, a fantastic instrument, would certainly recommend it!

Ho provato il Beta e altri clarinetti di altri famosi marchi da beta ha un suono che si avvicina ai Clarinetti professionali con una facilità di emissione strepitosa..facile e immediato..nn ha rivali di questa fascia..super!!!

Beautiful Instrument

We tested four clarinets in the same price range and this was by far the best choice.
