The 1010 requires a mouthpiece not specially made for the instrument to be
bored out to match the clarinet. The more technically minded on the list
will no doubt give measurements. if your clarinet has the same bore size
than the 1010 then this will be why you are playing sharp especially if the
barrel is of standard length.

Probably a short barrel, though I don't know for sure. 66 mm is usually
considered standard, and a mouthpiece that is notorious for playing
sharp on some instruments.

Try a longer barrel, and don't pull to a great extent without filling
the gap in the bore with tuning rings.

If you try different mouthpieces, take a tuner along. After having
played sharp for a long time, you probably can't trust your ear any
more. You've been conditioned to a different scale.
