Classic feel and playability
The Q Series clarinet offers those who prefer a more traditional French-style instrument the chance to experience the world of Backun. We combine modern manufacturing techniques and treatments, including a carbon fibre middle joint ring, with classic grenadilla wood and silver-plated key work to produce an instrument with truly familiar feel and playability.
Inline trill keys help reduce condensation accumulation, and precision under- and over-cut tone holes ensure impeccable intonation and response. An affordable masterpiece, the Q Series is the classic choice.

Happy Birthday to Me!
I purchased the Backun Q series Bb clarinet as a birthday gift to myself and all my wishes have come true. I have only played it for a few weeks, but I can already hear a difference in sound compared to my previous clarinet. My fingers also fit better which has allowed me to have better control.
I have been in need of a new clarinet for a few years and this was the perfect fit. I recently received this instrument and its absolutely amazing. The tone throughout the entire range of the instrument is very well done and holds a stability that my old clarinet didn't seem to have. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased!
I have never played a clarinet like this, just superb in every way, a revolution in design and quality.
A Stunning Work of Art
I had wanted to upgrade from a student clarinet to a wooden intermediate/professional model for quite a while. I trialed many leading brands however the Backun Q series led the pack for two reasons. Obviously, the richness and evenness of tone across the registers was a standout. However, Backun's practice of allowing the unique unstained personality of every piece of timber to shine out made my clarinet unique and personal to me. I loved this and the connection that I now have to this beautiful instrument. Thank you Backun for creating such a stunning work of art.
A TRULY AMAZING INSTRUMENT!!!
I recently purchased the Q with silver keys and gold posts, and cocobola wood. I played an R-13 for over 40 years, so much so that the keys were wore down to almost nothing! I was set on repurchasing another R-13.....then I played this clarinet and never looked back! I also purchased the Backun Vocalise CB mouthpiece, and added a neckstrap to the mix as well. I can only say that this experience has been awesome and I am really excited about playing the clarinet again! THANK YOU BACKUN for everything!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!
Thank you for making the amazing product.
I ordered Q-series clarinet for my son. He loves it very much.
