 Re: Moennig Barrels won't slide on

Are they binding or is the socket on the barrel shorter than the tenon on the clarinet?

If the barrel is binding on the wood at the bottom of the tenon, there isn't much you can do - if you modify the barrel, you'll risk voiding the return policy. If you sand down the shoulder of the tenon, you'll risk making your current barrel unstable if you want to keep using it.

It the barrel is stopping because the end of the socket area has hit the top of the tenon - the barrel socket is shorter than the tenon - you'll get a decent idea of how it plays leaving everything just as it is. But the difference in socket and tenon length may mean that the effective length of the barrel when it's on the clarinet is longer than its measured length. The combination of the clarinet and the barrel would be shorter if the barrel would go all the way to the bottom of the tenon. You could play the barrel on the clarinet without modifying either, as long as the tuning is what you want. You could have the barrel's socket deepened (lengthened) once you've bought it so it would go all the way down, but the tuning might not be what you expected.
