For players looking to own a wooden step-up clarinet, the Beta offers unparalleled value and beautiful out-of-the box playability. Seriously, Backun has done something right with this clarinet and it easily plays better than many popular professional level clarinets on the market. Featuring unstained, naturally-aged grenadilla wood, the barrel, body and bell are all crafted in Canada from the exact same wood used for Backun's professional and custom clarinets.
With a comfortable blowing resistance and an ergonomic key work mechanism, moving up to the Beta clarinet is a breeze. Solid silver keys, extra left-hand Eb lever, water resistant custom black leather pads, an adjustable thumb rest with neck strap ring, and a durable hard shell case round out an impressive list of features at an even more impressive price.
