Hi,
Have you been able to make any progress with your search for a clarinet pickup? I am in exactly the same situation as you and have been trying to dig up for ages something suitable. I am currently still stuck using a microphone on a stand to play into which isnt too bad but has its limitations in regards to mobility (as you would know, we clarinet players will swing the instrument) and this does not help with wanting to go cordless or avoiding unnecessary feedback. I have tried using a hypercardiod clip on mic (AKG) and find that it is way too sensitive and feeds back too much; and the extra weight is an issue. I have even tried using a lapel mic like the ones newsreaders have and again the sound is just too high endish and doesnt emphasise the bass end that well. As yourself, im not fussed either on sacrificing a barrel, if worse comes to worse can modify an old one. Ive had to cut down my barrels anyway to keep in tune. I adjust by moving the barrel up or down as needed. I have done extensive I/net searches and have not been able to find any information about these pickups whatsoever. If I could unearth a brand name or anything that would be a start. Please let me know how you go, and also if there are any units that you can use to provide some effects, ie. octave pedals etc.
I havent ventured into that realm, but wouldnt mind doing so. Any information rendered would be great. Michael
