“C” what you’ve been missing
The Backun C Barrel optimizes the tuning, stability, and intonation of this notoriously challenging auxiliary instrument. Whether you’re jamming with a guitarist or performing with a professional orchestra, you’ll immediately “C” what you’ve been missing.
Specs: Grenadilla or cocobolo wood. Tulipwood by special order only. Please contact us to order.
Most instruments use Standard fit. Standard Plus is the same fit with a larger bore that's more free blowing. Many (but not all) Selmer Paris instruments use Selmer Paris fit.
This varies by manufacturer. If you're happy with the tuning you'll want to order the same size as listed on your current barrel.
Cocobolo is red in appearance and offers a dark, full-bodied tone. Grenadilla is brown or black and offers a more focused sound with increased ping and projection. Tulipwood blends the best of both worlds.
Still Not Sure?
That's ok! Please contact us for assistance, we'd be happy to help.
One barrel, one velvet bag, and one barrel tube.
