I play on Boosey and Hawkes 1010s, which I bought new 33 or 34 years
ago, and which were described at the time as having a larger bore. Does
anybody know what their bore size actually is? I don't have too much
trouble playing in tune, but perhaps I've just got used to them.

And while I'm asking, I've always been curious about how the name '1010'
was derived, and their sister clarinets the Imperial 926.

Thanks in anticipation
