 Using Teflon Tape
Author: Ben Shaffer

So, I recently bought a Backun Blackwood Barrel for my Vito V40 Plastic Clarinet. The barrel seats snugly when I connect it to the Left hand section of the body. however the Van Doren M13 Hard Rubber Mouthpiece was loose.
I took Teflon tape and wrapped it around the lower part of the MP and it fits perfect now.
I'd take the MP down to my local repair person to recork it, but i believe with back to school in full swing, shes got about 40.000 Instruments she needs to work on.
Quick question, would there be any damage to the MP or Barrel if I leave the tape on several months?
I've used Teflon Tape on my Bagpipe chanter to connect to lower section of the Bagpipes.
Have done this with both Blackwood parts as well as Delrin, but never hard Rubber to Blackwood.
BTW. the Backun Barrel sounds outstanding!
