Hello Mister Bhsh,
thanks for your answer.
My question was :

It is a theorical question, for knowing the general effects of

It is for having some other advices and experiences.

I am Jazz saxophonist who study in amator classical clarinet at
a conservatory. But when i need to play little parts of clarinet
in a orchester it is very often at 442.

My Festival was sell with 2 barrels : 440 and 442, I have forget
the shorter this morning in a shop, honnestly I don't remember
the lenght. I will know that tomorrow but I think it is a 64 mm.
The 64 mm "seem" to help for playing with more "relax" embouchure
and when I sing/think correctly the notes, it works "more like a
saxophone". I prefer the sound with the 66 mm but I am too low
Lot of others saxophonists are in the situation, i think.

This way lot of notes in my left hand are curiosly more in tune,
and not only with me.

Clark Fobes : San-Fransisco 4l and 5L+Nova

The Vandorens play higher, but I like the Fobes ones.
My best regards.
