Tobin,

With both my Centered Tones and Series 9 clarinets, the 67mm barrel is the best one tuning wise - anything shorter than that will make them play very sharp. I have a 65mm and 63mm that came with my old Centered Tones, the 65mm is alright for playing in cold conditions, and also helps to keep in tune with the saxes and trumpets when they inevitably go sharp! But the 63mm is completely unsuitable for me.

My (A series) Series 9 Bb came with a 67mm barrel which I was pleased with as it hadn't been shortened (which usually happens to most older Selmer barrels I see, as 67mm replacements are hard to come by), but the (S series) A clarinet came with a 65.5mm Prologue barrel - I found a 68mm Series 9 barrel on the famous auction site which was of the same era as my A, just to complete it, though it was listed as being 67mm - not a problem, better being 68mm than 66mm.

I use the 67mm barrel on both clarinets, and the 68mm in the summer so I don't have to pull the barrel out at all.
