Backun Eb Barrels feature a unique cutback design that allows the use of Bb clarinet reeds on an Eb mouthpiece, without the need to trim them.
Artists love how this barrel improves intonation and flexibility, while stabilizing the tone of the instrument throughout all registers. Paired with the Backun Eb Bell, this barrel really tames the savage beast.

Choice of Grenadilla and Cocobolo woods:
Grenadilla and Cocobolo offer very different tonal characteristics.
The sound that Grenadilla products produce contain more high overtones and, therefore, have been described as having “ping.”
Cocobolo has less of these high overtones and is often described as being “warmer” than Grenadilla. Cocobolo also tends to project more efficiently than Grenadilla.
