The original cutback design
Backun Eb Cutback Barrel
The Original Eb Cutback
Backun Eb Barrels feature a unique cutback design that allows the use of Bb clarinet reeds on an Eb mouthpiece, without the need to trim them. Artists love how this barrel improves intonation and flexibility, while stabilizing the tone of the instrument throughout all registers. Paired with the Backun Eb Bell, this barrel really tames the savage beast.
Specs: Grenadilla or cocobolo wood. Tulipwood by special order only. Please contact us to order.
One barrel, one velvet bag, and one barrel tube.
Good for Bb reeds with Eb clarinet
This barrel has improved my tone and tuning substantially
Best investment ever
This barrel makes it possible to use Bb clarinet reeds and it has made my tone and intonation much better. It has made me overall more confident and comfortable playing such a difficult breed of clarinet.
Grenadilla Eb Cutback Barrel
It made a big difference. I was already playing on another Backun barrel, but I had a newer Selmer Eb clarinet that required a longer barrel. This new barrel, specific to my set-up, played a pivotal role in making my solos comfortable. Even the flute players commented! Thanks again!
Love the Eb cutback barrel
I’m a huge fan of Backun products and have a MoBa barrel and MoBa bell on my Bb and A clarinets and absolutely love the Eb cutback barrel. Not only do I get that gorgeous Backun sound, but now I can use my favorite Rue 56 reeds. Big thanks !
Barrel Improves Intonation and Evens out Tone
My new Backun Eb soprano clarinet barrel improves intonation and evens out the tone throughout all clarinet registers. I love that I can easily use Bb soprano reeds which helps me to blend better with the clarinet section.
