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.
We have a variety of testing environments instore for customers to experience and enjoy. Our range of testing rooms are available to pre-book and we can even reserve stock in advance so if you're making a jouney to see us we can be prepared to make it a special experience for you.

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.
