 D Albert Clarinet unusual barrel.
Author: woodchuck

I recently purchased a D Albert clarinet that came without a mouthpiece. The barrel has what someone has described as a "double tenon", in that the barrel has a sleeve so that the original mouthpiece either must have had a larger, possibly metal tenon, or a double tenon to fit both inside and outside the sleeve. I have modified a cheaper mouthpiece by making the tenon smaller so it will go into the barrel, but I'm wondering if anyone is familiar with this, if the proper mouthpiece is likely to be made out of hens teeth and just as hard to find, and if I should either consider finding a new barrel, or filling in the gap with some kind of wood epoxy and then opening up the tenon a bit?

Somewhere between the classical
and the blues, is the flower
of the indigenous.
