Subj: The Moenning Story---the book, the movie, or both

Charles Stier said in his reed working handbook that a classic
combination "in our time" was the Kaspar mouthpiece, Bonade ligature,
Moenning barrel, and Moenning-adjusted Buffet clarinet. OK. Can someone
clue me in on the relationship between his barrels, which are still out
there (I have two) and this "Moenning-adjusted Buffet clarinet" Mr. Stier
is talking about? Can I go out and order a "Moenning-adjusted Buffet
clarinet"? (Would I want to?)

I think the barrels are ace. But, are they for use on the R-13 of the
common man? I realize that one answer to the question would be "If it
sounds good, use it".

I'm interested in the "Moenning Story" (the Philadelphia story?!) What
was this clarinet like? What possibilities/opportunities do these barrels
give to a player who has not had has clarinet adjusted by Mr. Moenning?
