Great tone and price
Bought this for my daughter. She had a big smile when she played it for the first time. High and low notes were easy to play and we all loved the tone. Sounds great!
Sounds beautiful. Feels fantastic. Plays with ease. Very impressed.
Great clarinet perfect for my daughter. Exactly what we were looking for. Great sound and great quality!!
Good so far
I've only had it for a few days, but I'm enjoying my new Backun Alpha. Best feature: excellent quiet notes.
Sounds and plays like a pro
When I first played this horn, I was blown away by the consistency in tone and intonation (better than even some pro models I've played). When this clarinet is paired with a Vocalise and a Legere European Cut, it's nearly unstoppable. My first lesson I played on it, my teacher said it sounded like a wood clarinet, and that he would recommend it to his students over comparable student models. 6/5 for the cost.
Really proud of my purchase. I'm surprised of how it is easy to play, just takes a few minutes for me to adjust from my old clarinet to this new one. The mouthpiece is of good quality, I've always been teach to trow away mouthpiece that come with student clarinet, but this one is here to stay. The only point for the 4 stars rating is that my Backun Traditional barrel doesn't fit on it (fit on my Buffet), it get stuck half way down.
Hi Andreanne, Thank you for your feedback, and I'm pleased to hear you are enjoying the Alpha Mouthpiece that came with this clarinet. Please note that for our wood products to fit the Alpha, they should be adjusted slightly. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Best wishes,
