Paired with the Backun E♭ Bell, this barrel really tames the savage beast.

The Eb cutback barrel allows much greater control to play on the Eb clarinet; and the C clarinet barrel makes the sound much more beautiful.

Makes my Eb more playable!

The barrel requires plumber's tape in order to try it out, because it's cut far too large for most tenons. Backun then recommends having the tenon recorked to fit. I don't mind this at all, because being able to use my Bb reeds has taken a lot of the work out of playing the Eb, and made it sound less shrill. Yay!

Worth every penny, highly recommended!! :)

If you're looking for more control over your Eb clarinet, this is the barrel for you! It has the ability to play either Eb or Bb clarinet reeds with the cutback slit and it has a fatboy taper that rounds out the sound timbre more. I previously played on a Noblet 41 mm, and then switching to 43 mm cutback barrel instantly made all registers lock in with tuning. I now play my Eb Noblet clarinet with this barrel and a Backun Eb bell.
