 Custom handcrafted barrel & bell

I just want to share some of the articles I make. I was on the edge of throwing the clarinet on the garbage, but then I started making my own barrels & bells, and suddenly... it sounded very good (unlike a stepped-upon-the-neck-duck). Never since have I used the factory items set. The kind of wood is very important as well as the parameters. It is an ocean, but an interesting one how each material and 1/10 of a mm changes projection and tone. It is rather an individual solution for each instrument and taste for sound which can not be achieved by conveyer work. Indulge & Cheers!
