Subj: need help with mouthpiece and barrel
Date: Sat, 14 Mar 1998 11:43:56 -0500

1. How does Vandoren M13 mouthpiece compare to B45, is it for easier
blowing? What's the difference in tone quality(much darker?) and tip
2. Will the tone quality of a clarinet improve if I use a better barrel? I
have a buffet R13(R C actually) clarinet, and I would like to switch to a
better barrel. Which barrel would you recommand(plain looking, regular
sized), and please tell me their characteristics(tone), price and how to get
them. I'm looking for an easy-blowing, fast response, smooth, warm, full, a
little bit dark, and centered tone.
3. Are DEG's AccuBore Eddie Daniels Claasic barrels good? I'm interested in
these two models: AccuBore Eddie Daniels Classic Moening Round
Sound(A10-EDMR) and AccuBore Eddie Daniels Classic Standard Buffet
Bore(A10-EDB). They're of the same price I just wonder what are differences
between the two(tone quality....) I'm using a Buffet R13 (R C) clarinet,
which one will be best for me(perhaps the Standard Buffet Bore, why?). By
how much will it improve my Buffet's tone quality compare to the original
Buffet barrel. And what size should I choose? 64, 65, 66 mm?(what size is
it for buffet R13?)
Or do you know any better brands of barrels?
