i aquired a boosey and hawkes clarinet barrel, wood, that is by my best conversion approx. 60.5 mm. it is brown with a red hue, you might say. b flat barrels are usually 66 to 67mm, i believe. this barrel was in the case of a b flat clarinet. any ideas of what or possibly why?

I suspect somebody solved their problem of being flat by throwing money at it. You should just get a normal barrel. But before you do, double check that the instrument isn't high pitch (noted as HP). Maybe somebody tried to make it play in 440.
