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.

Does Wood Need Carbon Fibre?!
I was playing a concert in the amazing theatre “La Fenice” in Venice, Italy. The famous piano maker and engineer Paolo Fazioli was in the audience and he asked me at the end of the concert, “I’ve noticed your clarinet, wow Corrado your clarinet sounds amazing, is it carbon fibre?” I answered with the process of how it is made at the Backun factory and according to him the carbon fibre is a material where the wood doesn’t have any changes plus the the harmonics spectrum of the clarinet is wider. As soon as you get to play this clarinet you will immediately understand that this is the future of the clarinet and I’m very proud that it brings my name on it, thank you Backun Musical Services family.
