If you are rich enougp, Muncy's sepecial bell(250$) may be a choice to buy separately. It enhances resonance of the lowest E, they say. They have two kinds with ring and without ring. I wonder why a bell without ring can be possible.


According to one booklet on repairs that I have, the ring on the large end of the bell is basically decorative. It does protect the end of the bell from getting scratched but it is not needed for strength like the rings on the tenon joints. Currently I believe the Rossi clarinets have no ring on the large end of the bell. In books on the history of clarinets, I have seen pictures of clarinets of all ages that had no bell ring.

Plastic clarinets have very often been made without this ring. However, these days they do have the ring to make them look more like regular wood clarinets.
