Our Second Best Is Better Than All The Rest
We manufacture a lot of mouthpieces over the course of a year. Sometimes we find pieces with minor cosmetic flaws during the production process. Rather than discard these pieces, Backun Musical Services developed the Studio line of products. Studio Mouthpieces are acoustically perfect, yet may have minor imperfections, such as a ligature mark, or discolouration. Sold at a discounted price, these pieces are the next step in your growth as a performer.
Note: Backun Studio Mouthpieces are available in limited numbers. Custom orders and special requests for Studio pieces are not possible. If you are not able to add the mouthpiece you're looking for to your cart, it's because it is not available.
