Lumière A Clarinet

8 reviews Size Guide

  • The evolution of Backun

    The Lumière takes the clarinet to a level of breathtaking clarity and focus from the highest altissimo down through the low register. Less is more, as the Lumière flaunts European flair with uncompromising intonation and fluidity. Completely redesigned from the bell up, and the first clarinet to feature the new Backun Scale, this custom clarinet is a perfect match for those who desire the highest quality playing experience in a more traditional French-style instrument. Arching inline trill keys serve both form and function, moving the complex sculpted tone holes out of the waterline, while newly designed touch pieces offer a luxurious, refined feel. Among the finishing touches, custom leather pads make their first appearance on a Backun Clarinet, providing artists with unmatched response and feel.

Lumiere A and Bb Clarinets

I have owned my Lumieres for a little over two months now, and they have been wonderful. As an owner of cocobolo MoBas, I didn't think things could be better, but I was wrong. The Lumieres have taken the best aspects of my MoBas and made them even better--lustrous tonal quality, wonderful scale and exquisite craftmanship in an elegant package. Highly recommended!

Backun Lumiere A Clarinet

I needed to upgrade my current A clarinet because it was not playing they way I needed it too, so when I got the Lumiere clarinet set, everything just felt so much easier to play and switching between Bb and A felt so much easier!

Backun Lumiere Grenadilla A Clarinet

This A clarinet is amazing! Rich, dark sound, nice core, fabulous intonation. Truly, one of the most amazing instruments that I have played, only second to my Lumiere Bb clarinet!!!
