Answer: Clarinet bore dimension fluctuation can be compensated for through
the Barrel and Mouthpiece diameters. Volume expansion of the upper joint
be compensated for by using a small bore Moennig Barrel and 1/2 mm tuning
rings at the top and bottom barrel sockets. The tuning rings compensate
increased bore volume(when the barrel is pulled out) and improves the Wide
12ths with linear expansion of the bore.

This sort of information is invaluable! Thank you for your contributions to
this list. I only wish this sort of forum had been available when I was young
and had SO MANY questions.

Example: I sold a Buffet R-13 A clarinet back in the late 70's because of
stuffiness and some poor tuings. I didn't know that anything COULD be done!

Now this gives me some ideas of what could be done for my 1967 vintage R-13
Bb. I've been playing a bit lately and it is a fine horn. But it's possible
that your treatment above might "pep" it up.

Thanks again.
