Hello Nick,

I have a suggestion for you that might not be so upsetting to your parents. First, You'll need to try something though.

One of the main differences between the RC and the R-13 is the fact that the RC has an oval shaped indentation reamed out of the top portion of the bell. This significantly changes the sound. The Yamaha SEV's have "copied" this feature. In my opinion, you can really tell the difference in the sound between a Yamaha without this feature and one that does.

My suggestion is this take the bell from your RC 'A' clarinet and try it on the Bb. See if there is a change in the tone. If there is, you might consider seeing if you could order just an RC bell for your Bb Festival.

I'm getting ready to order RC bells for my pair of R-13's I've tried the RC bell at a local music shop, and it does give you a "bigger" tone, while still keeping it fairly dark.

Good Luck,
