@Micke Isotalo

Sorry, I haven't done any exact measurements on the mouthpiece myself. The only thing I am pretty sure of is that it is Austrian bore the tenon adapted for French clarinet.

I am not sure about your set-up or if you tried before but... just two cents worth of opinion...

Just to be clear, I am using R13s with 66 /65mm barrel roughly from the golden era period I think...

The tuning is weird but yet better. Weird because of the larger bore, the whole clarinet will be pitch flatter (literally way lower than A=440Hz) but better intonation as the partials are more accurate. It is at the level where the low F will be tune when I fully remove the bell.

I can still survive in orchestras /ensembles but the consideration /stress from constantly reminding myself about keeping the pitch in check is getting on my nerves... It's not too far off but, I know its always slightly under...

I have ordered one with Austrian dimensions + French bore + French tenon for testing since it is a hassle to keep raising my eyebrows... I will probably get in a week so can update here if you want to know more before ordering...

An expensive personal experiment but as a happy-go-lucky player, playnick was the only company whom was willing to do it for my crazy adventure! HAH!
