Meet the Backun Fatboy Barrel
So Much More
This barrel is my second one. I got a new clarinet and the old barrel was too long, so after trying to live with the stock barrel for about 2 years, I finally purchased another. I had forgotten how easy blowing and how much more sound I get with the Fatboy.
Best fit for my Yamaha Custom SEV
This 62mm barrel fits perfectly on my Yamaha Custom SEV. I was running into constant intonation (flat) problem with my Yamaha 65mm stock barrel. The Fat Boy model is slick. I will recommend it to all my students and colleagues working on their doubles.
My expectations in quality, service and delivery were surpassed. Beautiful barrel and bell. I am so delighted. Should not have waited so long to buy!
What a difference!!!
From the moment I started to use the barrel on my clarinet I felt the response change. My sound was bigger and brighter but still able to slide down to soft easily. Intonation was even throughout the range including the Altissimo. Highly recommend this upgrade
Loud and rich tone
My first impression is that it does deliver what it says ! I have a simple student clarinet and thu barrel did wonder to upgrade the sound so much. Can’t wait to use it on an actual wooden clarinet !! Definitely recommend it and will buy other barres as well!
Fits well on a Yamaha Duet+
It has a lovely sound and really punches up the volume on my Yamaha.
