In my opinion serious clarinets are never built to be higher than 442/444 and this means that probably there is something wrong in your embochure.

Andrea,
I don't believe you've played in Europe, have you? Some orchestras play at A=444 or higher, and clarinets can be had that play that way. Also, A=440/442 is relatively new as a standard - many clarinets made at the turn of the century will be tuned higer or lower (most probably lower).

Any clarinet where the barrel & mouthpiece have to be pulled out (pulling out the mouthpiece is _not_ recommended) is seriouly out of tine with today's pitch standards. Most student instruments play slightly sharp to compensate for a developing embouchure, but nothing to this extent, especially on the long notes.
