 Re: Backun Mouthpiece=Zinner Blanks

I was four when I started the clarinet; and my very first teacher, Paul Harris, taught me that practice was MUCH more beneficial than constantly trying new equipment. Therefore, I had been playing the same brand of mouthpiece for more than nine years. Then I had opportunity to try the Backun MP.

Backun Musical have a machine that is huge and worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. It is especially programmed, and with custom made tooling, to rework the blanks internally and on the facing. It seemed very involved with several tool changes and laser devices used. This machine, I am told, is accurate to within 1/ 10,000 of an inch. Again, for me, there is no 'hype'. This mouthpiece matched expectation and more.

As to the price of the mouthpieces...well, my previous brand was equal, if not more in price.

Leblanc/ Backun artist.
