Backun Fatboy Barrel

I liked this product so much that I bought a second to give to my music mentor as a gift, and he was equally impressed.

Nice sounding barrels

I recently purchased two fatboy barrels (66 and 67). They have improved my sound and intonation. I would highly recommend Backun barrels.

The best Barrel ever!

The barrel is phenomenal and can fill a concert hall with ease. It has a really loud yet sweet tone like no other!

Fatboy Grenadilla Barrel - Standard Fit 64 mm

The new barrel is working out as hoped. It brings a warmer tone to my Bliss-Leblanc-Backun clarinet and appears to have improved tuning and tonal quality in each register.

Fatboy review

The wood is beautiful and this fatboy is great for classical pieces and just producing a round deep throated tone.
