Q Series A Clarinet

Classic feel and playability

The Q Series clarinet offers those who prefer a more traditional French-style instrument the chance to experience the world of Backun. We combine modern manufacturing techniques and treatments, including a carbon fibre middle joint ring, with classic grenadilla wood and silver-plated key work to produce an instrument with truly familiar feel and playability.

Inline trill keys help reduce condensation accumulation, and precision under- and over-cut tone holes ensure impeccable intonation and response. An affordable masterpiece, the Q Series is the classic choice.

Optional: Left Hand Eb Lever.

Includes: Two New Traditional Barrels, One Traditional Bell, BAM Custom Case, Polishing Cloth, Swab and Cork Grease. Available in Bb and A. (Mouthpiece not included)
