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

So far, so good!
I am pleased with the clarinet's intonation and response. The finish is so beautiful and nice to see the grain of the wood.
Backun Artist's demos and reviews are a great help in aiding instrument level and equipment selection. The technology behind the entire Backun range is most impressive.
Dream come true!
Amazing instrument! Easy blowing, sweet sound in all registers. Thank you Backun for this piece of art!
The quality of this clarinet is great. It's particularly nice for my small hands. The intonation is the best that I've had. I did have to clear out condensation from the trill keys much sooner than I anticipated and the sound isn't as full as what I get on my R-13. I'm guessing that the later will improve the more time that I spend with the instrument.
Best Value for its Price
I literally just finished play testing the Buffet R13, Yamaha 650, Backun Protege, and Backun Q. Hands down, the Q series was the winner. The tone is extremely even throughout the entire range. The articulation is phenomenal. This clarinet is a MUST HAVE!
The Q2 does play well
