The Backun Alpha clarinet is the result of years of research and development and the desire to give student clarinetists an affordable instrument that won’t be restrictive during their development. 

Made from a special synthetic material chosen for its excellent sonic capabilities and exceptional tone, the Alpha also gives professional players an instrument that they can confidently use for performances where a wooden instrument might not be appropriate. 

And, with a special barrel, bell and bore design by Morrie Backun, the Alpha is sure to take you to the next level. 

  • Ideal beginner instrument for new clarinet players 
  • Specially designed barrel and bell for a clear immediate sound 
  • Lightweight bell design to balance the feel of the instrument 
  • Ergonomically designed nickel plated keywork for ease of play 
  • Supplied with mouthpiece and case, silver plated keys

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.
