 Libertas with Cocobolo Barrel and/or Bell
Author: Jack Nelson 
Date:   2019-06-13 05:18

It seems like many clarinetists who purchase a Backun Alpha clarinet also invest in a cocobolo barrel and/or bell in order to circumvent a certain brightness that is endemic with synthetic clarinets.

If a synthetic clarinet is purchased for the purpose of avoiding the possible cracking of the instrument due to outdoor performances in extreme weather conditions, wouldn't the cocobolo barrel and/or bell be susceptible to cracking thereby negating the reason for the purchase?

In other words, are barrels and bells made of wood in danger of cracking under conditions of extreme temperature and humidity in addition to the wooden body of the clarinet?

Has anyone tried cocobolo barrels and/or bells with the Lyrique Libertas? If so, what did you discover?
