The new 'cutback' barrel from Backun is an excellent option for the advanced Eb Clarinet player. Made from the highest quality cocobolo wood this new model features a unique cutback design that allows the use of a Bb Clarinet Reed on an Eb Mouthpiece, without the need to trim them.
The flattened side of the barrel allows for this reed overlap and players have commented on how the barrel improves intonation and flexibility whilst stabilising the tone across all registers of the instrument.
The cocobolo wood is generally softer and warmer sounding than the grenadilla equivalent. On Eb Clarinet that softening of the somewhat strident tone might be preferable in certain situations.
- Made of quality cocobolo wood
- Barrel offers warmth of tone, even sound & great intonation
- Available in various sizes
- Made in Canada
