Possibly "dark" is also meaning stuffy, or unfocused sounding - both
are bad to me, but Dark itself with still having projection to the
sound is a good thing. Unfocused is of course bad. And Barrels can
make a significant difference of the clarinet's timbre - as well as
intonation.

Clarke,

With no wish to get into the "dark/bright" argument that crops up
periodically (stay calm, Dan), I wonder, because I don't know how old
you
are or whom you studied with, what generation you're referring to. I
don't
want to see a reprise of the whole argument, but your comment made me
wonder
(without wanting to criticize your having used the term) which players
exemplified "dark" in the way you meant it.
