The future and beyond
The world’s most technologically advanced clarinet, the CG Carbon features a body crafted from carbon fibre with an exotic wood core. Using a patented process, carbon fibre is fused to the precision machined core, resulting in a clarinet with the robust projection and unmatched intonation that Backun is known for. Years of material analysis and real-world testing have proven the fusion process can endure wide-ranging temperatures and humidity conditions without expansion or contraction of the clarinet body. Tonally, the playing characteristics stay true to that of a wooden clarinet with the new Backun Scale. This signature model, designed for Maestro Corrado Giuffredi, represents a giant leap into the future… and beyond. US Patent No. 10,636,395.
Available in B♭ and A, unstained grenadilla or cocobolo body with gold or silver keywork. Automatic low F vent, removable left-hand A♭/E♭ lever. Lumière complex taper and tone holes. Approx. 830 g.

The Clarinet of my Dreams
Finesse, class, power, elegance, exquisite resonance, impeccable intonation and the gorgeous looks, without a doubt these are the clarinets of my dreams!
Love From the First Note
I just purchased a B-Flat Carbon Fiber clarinet in mid-November. After playing a set of the MoBa Super Series instruments for 4 years, I couldn't imagine another clarinet playing any more beautifully. However, from the first time I tried the Carbon Fiber clarinet, it was love from the first note!! The tone is gorgeous--extremely rich, resonant and responsive. Dynamic contrasts and control are supremely easy to achieve. After playing this incredible instrument for two months, I can say it is the most exquisite clarinet I have ever experienced. I am delighted that it is completely protected from cracking and yet is made of a solid cocobolo core. The new key work is of superior quality like no other clarinet. I am looking forward to adding the A clarinet to my collection.
