I want to clarify that I AM still making barrels!!!!

My barrels are now available in African blackwood and Amazonian Rosewood. I
make Bb 64-67mm, A 64-66mm., Eb 41-43mm, and C 45 -47mm.

I have gone to a design that is entirely wood and has no rings. These
barrels have a beautiful sound and projection and at $149 are substantially
less expensive than some of the current custom barrels.

I don't offer different tapers. I use the same taper I have always used on
Bb and A. (The A taper is different than the Bb taper). I now have a
beautiful reamer for my Eb barrels and they have a slight taper as well.
