 Matching mouthpiece and barrel
Author: Wayne 
Date:   2006-08-20 04:05

I've decided to treat myself to a new mouthpiece and barrel for my 50th. I currently play a " Master Model " buffet, SN D26204 with a Vandoren M15 mouthpiece - I use several different reeds, FOFs, RueLepec 3.5+ and V12's.
I like the M15 for articulation but I do have to work hard to keep things in tune in the upper regester. I've never tried a barrel with this old horn, and after reviewing some posts, it sounds like something I should try ! I've looked at several MP sites and most say they can match MP to barrel....
What I don't understand is this: Shouldn't the barrel also be matched to my horn ? I can kind of understand how a MP and barrel can be matched, but doesn't my horn provide an important variable ? Do people send horns to MP makers ? Thanks for any input.
