Hello Chris,

I am 98% certain that the first student uses a 65mm barrel that came with her horn. It was just a bit shorter than my 66.

Her mouthpiece was given to her by a previous teacher. I am uncertain exactly what it is...however I am pretty sure that it was finished by my original teacher Larry Greenspan. This would be an almost Kaspar quality and design mouthpiece.

The second student uses an HS* with the original barrel from her horn. I flaked and didn't think to measure it before she left.

You mentioned 67 and 68 barrels you used previously...are these the standard lengths provided for the Series 9? If so, a 65 would explain the first student's pitch entirely.


SB...I have played both of these instruments and didn't notice them to project any more easily or greatly than my R13. However the better of the two students comes tomorrow, so I will measure the barrel and give the horn another try!
