  • Never ever sacrifice

    The MoBa was born from a desire to improve everything and sacrifice nothing. When it was released, it set its own path, but unrelenting artists took note and lead the way. Soon the whole clarinet world was turned on its head, and the MoBa became a modern classic that’s been referred to as the “Stradivarius of the clarinet world.”

    Today’s MoBa blends modern CNC technology with tried and true hands-on craftsmanship, and each one is built right here in Canada. Its increased resistance and dark tone colour make it the perfect match for today’s soloists, orchestral players, and those who give their all to their craft.

The Lumière - Amazing craftsmanship

I had the opportunity to try the cocobolo and granadilla Lumières. Although I preferred the granadilla version, I was amazed by the consistency of intonation in both clarinets. It’s very rare that you can get an amazing clarinet without trying many before finding a good one. The tone is beautifully clear, centered, and consistent throughout all registers. The throat notes sounds resonant and in tune without the need of resonant alternate fingers. Playing through all registers comes effortlessly and with the perfect amount of resistance. After trying various top models of a mayor brand without success in finding a great clarinet I have been fortunate to find in the first try the most amazing and beautiful instrument. Thanks Sean for suggesting the Lumière to me.

I Love It!

I first heard of the Moba Clarinet on Instagram and was immediately intrigued. I watched multiple videos on it until the day came where I got to play it at a music convention. Immediately, as soon at it was set in my hands, I fell in love. It sits wonderfully on the fingers, is balanced in all registers, and has a resistance that makes every note speak with warmth and clarity. Love my new Moba Clarinet!

Mona mouthpiece?

Can I buy the moba mouthpiece (442hz). If not, which is the equivalent mouthpiece? Thanks a lot?

From the first note I was in love

I just returned home with my new Custom Cocobolo MoBa with gold keys and a Legend mouthpiece. I am still a bit stunned at my good fortune to have been in the right place at the right time. I happened to be in my local music store as was this gorgeous MoBa fresh from a trade show. From the first note I was in love. I have been coveting a high end Backun for years and was finally in a position to purchase. Today was the day! I tried it with different mouthpieces, including my Lomax and decided the Legend needs to come too. I am a novice/amateur clarinetist who loves to play and wanted an instrument to go with me on my journey to being the best I can be. Thank you to the Backun family for producing such beautiful looking and playing instruments.
