My wooden Super Artist Pruefer barrel has a crack in it almost the whole length of the barrel on the inside. It doesn't seem to be very deep but it's noticeable to the eye.

Can you tell me is this fixable or not and how much will it effect the sound of the clarinet?

If it is fixable, how do you fix it? (other than taking it to a repair man)

If it's not fixable, is it best to try to find another used Pruefer barrel or will any wooden barrel be fine?

I am trying to put together a good used wooden clarinet for my 15 year old daughter who plans on using it for the rest of high school and into college.

We are doing all the repadding and recorking and cleaning of a used Super Artist Model Pruefer sn# J00311and/or a used Professional Model Pruefer sn#14440. Whichever one is going to work the best. Both Pruefers seem to be in pretty good shape. Don't know much of the history of either - a friends, brother bought them at auctions.

The Professional Pruefer seems to be from the 1941 era - according to some research on the sn #. And is also a Carl Fisher make. That one also came with a Pruefer mp. However the barrel that came with the Professional Pruefer is not wooden - not sure why they would have used a non wooden Pruefer barrel with this clarinet.

I'll attach a couple pictures.
