The most advanced clarinet designed for the advancing student or young professional ever made, the Leblanc by Backun Cadenza clarinet plays with amazing clarity and authority. Many players have commented that the voice of this "step-up" clarinet rivals the professional clarinets on which they have performed for years. Each Cadenza clarinet features a hand selected grenadilla wood body and key work that is nearly flawless. The acoustic design by Morrie Backun blows consistently throughout all of the registers as the resistance does not change. The added feature of the Backun ringless barrel makes for a sound that is even more consistent and focused.

Grenadilla wood body with cocobolo barrel.

The Cadenza is amazing. The tone is superb, and the response and intonation are very good, as well. Low notes are wonderful, and high notes come out beautifully. I had been using a Yamaha Allegro for six years, and it was time to upgrade for college. I was planning on getting another Yamaha, but this one just stood out from the rest! The Cadenza is better than any R-13 I have ever played. It comes with two Backun barrels; I prefer to use the 66mm cocobolo, for its tone. My clarinet professor and my very picky friend both greatly approve. I highly recommend this clarinet.

I like this clarinet. I have owned 2 clarinets before this and this is the best. I would recommend this clarinet to experienced players looking for a nice instrument. I really like it.
