Are there any ways to tell if a Moennig Barrel is real?

I don't know how Mönnig marked his barrels when he was alive. But the ones you buy now are not real Mönnig barrels.

if they are made out of the same wood and have the same dimensions as moenning's handmade barrels, are the buffet/moennings real or not real? if the barrel works for you is it good or bad?

Problem is that the Buffet Mönnig barrels aren't made to the exact same dimensions. They are very inconsitant. If you can ever find one that really works superb for you then great. But i've played dozens of them and they have all been very bright and hollow sounding. Some were stuffy, others were much too free blowing, some were just right but weren't focussed.

Remember, all, that this was true for Daniel. Any of them might be perfect for <i>you</i> .

Exactly. But chances are, most of them wouldn't have played well for anyone either. A certain few might have played decent for one person, and another couple might have been acceptable for another person, and so on. But with the number of "Moennig" barrels Buffet cranks out, it's no suprise they very so great in quality and consitancy.
