  • The orchestral catalyst

    The MoBa Barrel produces an unmistakable, full-bodied, dark sound that makes it a favourite amongst orchestral players worldwide. With increased resistance and focus, and an unbelievable ease of articulation throughout the entire range of the clarinet, this barrel is a great option for artists wanting a darker tone. Artists prefer this barrel for orchestral repertoire, whether playing in the section or as a featured soloist.

    Specs: Grenadilla or cocobolo wood. Compatible with Bb and A clarinets.

Honoring warranty

So appreciate the smooth, gracious warranty replacement of a MoBa barrel that developed a small crack in it. Backun handled this process with great integrity.

Exceeded my Expectations

The MoBa barrel has exceeded expectations! I have always struggled with projecting my sound- even as a student at Conservatory. I always assumed I was the problem and never imagined the equipment could be contributing to my struggles! My B-flat & A clarinets are both Buffets and I feel I have just treated myself to a whole new set of clarinets! I truly feel excited to play again and am now enthusiastic about solos and exposed parts in my music. Thank you, Backun!
