The original Backun Barrel.
Perhaps the most astonishing feature of the Traditional Grenadilla Backun Barrel is the wooden tenon rings, which replace the force-fit metal rings found on most commercially available clarinets. The wooden rings breathe new life into the barrel, allowing the barrel and rings to act as a cohesive unit, rather than suppressing the sound and constricting the vibrations. Grenadilla is considered by many to be a more traditional choice that is best utilized for orchestral and wind symphony playing.
