Hand Selected Barrels
If you are in the market for a new barrel to complement your new instrument, selecting a Chadash or Moenning might be worth a look.
Chadash barrels have a slight V taper in them (not visible to the nak ed eye) resulting in a slightly bigger shape of sound and more projection over a standard Buffet barrel.
Moening barrels have an hour glass taper (also not visible) which produces a warmer rounder and somewhat smaller shape of sound.
Chadash has become, over the years, the more popular barrel. H owever, both play very well with Buffet clarinets and enhance their natural resonance and fluid response.
Just like the clarinets, I hand select all of the barrels I sell and these can be tried on approval, just like clarinets, for two weeks. The barrels are available for Bb in 65mm, 66mm, 67mm and 68mm and for A in 64mm, 65mm, 66mm and 67mm.
