 Chadash barrel on Tosca
Author: rgoldem

Does anyone have experience with Chadash Barrels on Buffet Tosca clarinets? Are inverted cone barrels a good match for these instruments?

I haven't tried them on a Tosca, but I don't see why they wouldn't work. They open up the sound without throwing the throat tones out of tune. Personally, I prefer the Clark Fobes barrels. They work on any Buffet.

PS. The Tosca is basically a tarted-up Buffet R13.

I had lots of success with Brad Behn’s barrels on Tosca clarinets. I found Tosca’s tune a little lower than r13’s. Prior to switching barrels, I was using a 65 mm to stay at 440, but used a 66mm Behn for 440. Definitely the taper of the barrel made the difference. Best of luck on the barrel search.
