Product Information

This is the new Backun Signature Series ‘Shifrin’ Clarinet mouthpiece. This mouthpiece, developed alongside legendary US Clarinettist David Shifrin, has been designed by master-craftsman Richard Hawkins on behalf of Backun. The result is a mouthpiece with a full, rich and broad tone throughout the range.

This new Signature Series from Backun currently includes two models, this Shifrin and also a Corrado model. Both feature new internal and external designs compared to the Vocalise range. They also come with rubber o-rings in place of traditional cork (3 different sizes supplied in the outfit). The Shifrin model is craften with a unique A-Frame baffle exit, representing the future of clarinet mouthpiece design. It has a medium/long facing with a fairly close tip opening (1.04mm). The medium/long facing has been optimised to work well with both synthetic and cane reeds.

This Shifrin mouthpiece is produced in a marbled slate hard rod rubber (ebonite). The manufacturing tolerances are exceptional and offer the leading quality of any clarinet mouthpiece in production. This ensures each Shifrin clarinet mouthpiece offers exactly the same response and tone. This model would suit players who prefer a closer tip opening and harder reed set-up. Perhaps those who have been using Vandoren M13, M15, or D'Addario Reserve X0, X5 models. Please see comparison chart in alternate pics for more info.
