 Re: Tuning Rings Warpage
Author: Paul Aviles

I use tuning rings between joints. On my present clarinet I needed to fine tune the registers by pulling out a little bit. I settled on the added intrusion of the rings to make assembly and constant space easier. In the end they do seem to make the sound a bit smoother, though the space between joints needs to be bit bigger (more rings) than it would be without them.......because of the gap.

Now, being a bit anal about things I use the brass ones sold by Clark Fobes

To get the spacing I wanted I wound up getting two packs. It is also worth noting that the thinnest one is quite bendable.......so just DON'T bend it! Besides that, they are very durable, accurate and will last.
