Today I speak with Morrie Backun, who is the President, Chief Instrument Designer, and founder of Backun Musical Services. Backun is a relatively new Canadian company that started off producing just clarinet barrels and bells, but has grown to be a globally-recognized manufacturing brand since the release of their first complete instrument less than a decade ago. They now proudly produce their original barrels and bells alongside mouthpieces, student and intermediate clarinets, and some of the world's most sought-after professional-level instruments. Many of these products are manufactured and assembled by hand in Burnaby, British Columbia Canada. Their instruments are played by some of the biggest names in the industry, including the legendary Eddie Daniels, Ricardo Morales, and David Shifrin, just to name a few. In this interview, we discuss Backun's philosophy on design, working directly with artists to customize instruments to their liking, exciting details about upcoming products, and how and why they keep their factory so impeccably clean and organized. The giveaway for this episode is a brand new Backun Alpha Clarinet valued at $1075 USD
