i have a hawkins and like it a lot. as far as everything- you need to try several for yourself and see what works best for YOU on your clarinet. what one person may love another will be totally against. it's personal preference. many people like the bay mouthpiece, greg smith, vandoren makes a couple of good ones- try several. i'm not sure about the barrel. i think if you like what you have and it's in tune, don't spend a lot of money on another- i'm not sure what barrels selmer players use- (you'll get more comments)
you can order things from muncy winds or the ww/bw on trial then send back what you don't like. it's best to try many before you buy, i think. also, if you can, have a teacher or professional listen to you if you want another opinion while you;re trying mouthpieces.

i have a bay ligature, and i love it, but i had to put leather on the inside so it doesn't slip- maybe he's making a new one now, i forget. i hear the vandoren you got is good, i've never played one. also, many like the bonade inverted ligature, but most cut the middle out (or have a jeweler or someone do it, rather) again, it's what you like and works best for you-

any selmer players have comments? im not one, but you'll get more replys. good luck
