 Re: Barrel Question

Check with a tuner to see if you are still flat on your E11 Germany, because chances are you might be pretty in tune now. I have a E11 France and a R13, and my E11 France plays sharper than my R13. Maybe you don't need a new barrel.

You also need to test the barrels out for yourself to see exactly what length you need. Depends on how flat you are too. And there are just so many barrels out there with different tapers. You won't know which is the best unless you try for yourself.

If you want a barrel that will allow you to play pretty much in tune in any circumstance, maybe take a look at the P&S Zoom Barrel or the cheap version of it, Berkeley Freedom Barrel.
