Backun Alpha Clarinet – Nickel Keys
Synthetic Body | Professional Bore
The Backun Alpha Clarinet is the result of years of research and development and the desire to give student clarinetists an affordable instrument that won’t restrict their development. Made from a proprietary synthetic material chosen for its excellent tonal qualities, the Alpha Clarinet also gives professional players an instrument that they can confidently use for performances where a wooden instrument might not be appropriate.

Every Backun Alpha clarinet we send out to a customer is not released from us unless it has been completely setup in our shop first. Sometimes, a clarinet (regardless of who the manufacturer or the price point is) comes in needing 20 minutes of adjustments and then the very next one can require 2 hours!
This is why we perform our setup (in our www.ClarinetRepairs.com ProShop) on your new Backun Alpha clarinet before delivering it to you. You trust us with your purchase and we want to make sure that you are rewarded by giving you your new Backun Alpha clarinet setup flawlessly!
Upgrade your Backun Alpha with a Backun Wood Barrel!
The Backun Alpha clarinet is an amazing instrument! However, you can get even more performance out of it with a Backun Wood Barrel. A wood barrel on the composite body brings an amazing amount of tonal improvement and brings further tonal depth to your clarinet! The best value is our Kessler Custom by Backun barrels as they are affordable and use the same acoustic designs as other Backun professional barrels.
Please note: If you purchase a Backun barrel with the Backun Alpha clarinet, the stock Alpha barrel’s receiving tenon is slightly larger than the wood Backun barrels. While the Backun wood barrels will still fit on the Alpha, they will compress the cork to fit the wood barrel thus making the Alpha barrel looser. If you would like us to custom fit a wood Backun barrel to fit the SAME as the Alpha barrel, we can do that at no cost, but as this is a permanent customization to the wood barrel, it would void any return options on the barrel.
