 Re: Odd A Clarinet Barrel

I am just a high school student, so maybe I am not the best one to test if this is a decent barrel or not, but I did a blind tuning test today, and here are my results of comparing the Chadash Buffet 67 barrel that also came with the instrument to the Royal 66 barrel. The results from the Chadash are on the left and Royal on the right (I am not sure how much is considered standard for these tests, so here is my full range starting at low E):

E:-8 E:-18

It seems to me that I was significantly sharper on the Chadash barrel, but I could always pull out a little bit to help correct that. The Royal had more flat notes, but a lower standard deviation at 6.462 (compared to 7.386 of the Chadash). I am not sure which I will primarily use yet, but based on my test it seems that the oddly colored Royal barrel is at least a suitable alternative.
