 Re: Barrel Question

This is very general. The higher you go on the clarinet with softer reeds and the Vandoren mouthpiece I think you will begin to play a shade flat in the upper register and above the break of high C.

I'm not too fond of the Buffet mouthpieces. I'm not sure if these will solve your pitch issues, but surely give it a try.

As for the Steuer reeds, if you got them from me they are probably well played out. I think I gave you a free box. I'm the US distributor so I don't think you got them from anyone else. They would be about a year or 2 old.

If you find that part of your problem, based on the upper notes going flatter, look around for a mouthpiece around a 1.04mm's to 1.05mm's and use a 3 strength reed. I think this would be an ideal setup for you. Later on you can try a 3 1/2 strength reeds from assorted reed makers and see if one of these fits you well.

Hope this helps!
