Subj: [kl] Too many barrel choices!
Date: Sun, 5 May 2002 20:27:50 -0400

I've read the latest threads on the issue of barrels and the many choices
that are available. Aside from the expected subjective views on which
barrels are best, I'm wondering about the objective differences in sound that
are attained with each barrel. For example, I've read about Moening barrels,
Chadash, accu-bore, inverted bore, hour-glass bore and so on... What I'm
looking for is brief description of some of these barrels (e.g such and such
barrel has a "brighter" sound, etc). I also wouldn't mind hearing about
which barrels you prefer, and why.
