 Re: Selmer Series 9 intonation

Reawakening this I'm curious about the last post from Ralph. I, too would spend some money on barrels if I knew what diameter to specify. In fact, I have a lathe and know how to use reamers, etc (ex-machinist), so I could play around with some hard rubber rod to make test barrels IF I had some sense of what diameters/tapers/length tradeoffs were interesting.

I have measured lots of barrel, mouthpiece and LH joint diameters on 'all stock' vintage clarinets and not found any pattern that makes sense. Certainly there does not appear to be any attempt to match the diameters at the interfaces, which I find surprising, as my knowledge of acoustics would suggest that bore discontinuities would create all sorts of 'interesting' intonation and timbre issues. The discontinuities are, presumably, a node of sorts.
