Anyone try Walter Grabner's Fatbody Barrels?
What do you think? Comparable in any way to Chadash, Moenig, Fobes etc?

I had him make me a Cocobolo barrel for an older Selmer clarinet. It plays beautifully and is very attractive. (he is adjusting it for me as the tenon sockets are slightly tight for my particular clarinet.

i have Morri backun barrel.

I was using a custom barrel, by a well known maker, on a terrific Buffet instrument and it was fine. I did, however, put backun barrel on the clarinet as soon as I received it and it has been used ever since. The barrel is exceptionally even throughout the registers, well in tune and offers me all the colors that I want to get out of the Buffet instrument that I prefer
also, it made of Cocobolo wood.
the morri backun bell work greatly too

hi i love you
