Backun Model Q Clarinet
Redefining the Professional Clarinet
The new Backun Model Q Clarinet offers players the performance of a true artist level instrument at a more traditional professional clarinet price. Too often players are convinced that they have to spend far more than they need to in order to get the best. No more! The Backun Model Q clarinet features the pure performance in line with the MoBa Artist Series clarinets but in a price that is more within professional clarinet reach!
Dave Kessler’s Description
The Backun Model Q clarinet, like the Model F, has an absolutely wonderful sound to it. Many players & teachers feel that modern clarinets sometimes struggle to be able to take large amounts of air… not with the Backun Model Q! This instrument allows you to play straight through without restriction, but still handles with grace and ease even the softest dynamic passages. Furthermore, Backun has put together one of the finest engineered and assembled clarinets that I have ever come across. The Model Q provides players with the perfect blend of performance and affordability in this marvelous clarinet!

Model F vs. Model Q
Both the Model F and the Model Q clarinets are based on a shared design platform. However, the Model Q is designed to be a more straightforward approach to the clarinet. What we mean by this is that unlike the Model F, the Model Q will be available in only 2 configurations without the additional customizations and “bells and whistles” of the Model F. The Model Q is only available in Grenadilla whereas the Model F can be had in either Grenadilla or Cocobolo. The Model Q will also only be offered with silver keys (Model F has silver or gold).
Feature wise, the Model Q will not be available with the automatic Low F venting mechanism employed on the Model F and the MoBa models. The Model Q will also not use the metal tenon caps, but will still maintain the carbon fiber center tenon ring. All of this helps to bring the Model Q into a price range that is more competitive with the traditional professional clarinet market, while still allowing for the performance offerings that can only be found through Backun.
The only option available for the Model Q is whether or not you want the left-hand Eb/Ab lever or not. This simplicity helps to streamline production and lower the final cost to the consumer while maintaining the performance quality that demanding players require.
Every Backun Model Q 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 Model Q 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 clarinet setup flawlessly!
