Subj: Buffet E-11 barrel

Has anyone else on the list measured a barrel that comes with the E-11?
One of my students just bought one, and, after playing very sharp I
started checking the causes. I discovered that the barrel included with
the instrument was a 64mm length. We tried a Scott 66aa2 barrel that I
happened to have and the clarinet then played much closer to A-440.
