Backun Alpha with S/P Keys Reviews

Anonymous review via Feefo  -  2022-03-02

I'm not sure if one could ever select the perfect instrument ! The Backun Alpha is certainly enjoyable to play. I like the tone and the use of the keys is fine. The more expensive (wooden) option had "smoother" keys when playing it but I thought sounded very similar to the Backun Alpha.

A good, solid clarinet for playing outdoors. Consistent tuning throughout the registers

The Backun Alpha is my first clarinet, and I am extremely pleased with it! It is extremely easy to play and has a very beautiful sound.

I wanted a synthetic clarinet so I can play it outside. I didn't want a "cheap" instrument. The Backun Alpha almost matches the sound that I get on my wooden clarinet, although I found that my Vandoren mouthpiece and "Fatboy" barrel improved the sound. One feature that I like is the perfect tuning of the "long" Eb/Bb. I don't like the unprotected thumb rest though.
