 Barrel Question
Author: BGBG 
Date:   2017-11-23 03:13

When I took some lessons my teacher said I was playing flat and should get a different barrel length. At the time I was only interested in learning to play and not in flat or sharp. And the music store did not really appreciate his suggesting I change components on a rental clarinet. Now I have a Buffet E-11 Germany and the barrel that came with it measures 64.12 mm on my digital caliper. If I were playing flat and wished to improve is there a suggested barrel brand or length to try or do I just go to a music shop with my pitch meter and try different barrels until I find one that suits. Not a big issue but I have been curious ever since. I only play for myself, not with group or band or in public. Any suggestions?
