The Protégé is your foot in the door to college or the perfect teaching companion. Compared often to the R13 this clarinet stands out from the crowd and has a gorgeous sound to match. 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. The Protégé features a professional finish, undercut tone holes, solid silver keys, an extra left-hand Eb key, and a New Traditional Barrel and Backun Bell. Water resistant custom black leather pads, an adjustable thumb rest with neck strap ring, and a durable backpack case rounds out an impressive list of features at an even more impressive price.
