I have one of the older Noblet C's... I don't know the exact age because I
bought it used. It has had a fair amount of work done on it to bring the
intonation into where it should be... There is a lot of stuff in the holes
to make this happen. I use the stock barrel for it.

As for a mouthpiece, I've had great luck with the Vandoren B40 that I also
use for my B-flat. It usually plays just a tad sharp so I pull out about 1
mm (or less). My only complaint about this setup is that I have a very
difficult time playing above high G. I play the Ginastera Varionces
Concertantes (sp?) on C clarinet and sometimes I have a hard time getting up
to the required "B." Other than that, it is great--especially considering I
bought it for something like $400. :-)
