 Selecting a Shorter Barrel
Author: Ken. 
Date:   2021-06-07 13:28

I recently bought a Selmer Signature clarinet. Based on the serial number I estimated it to be an early 2000's model. It comes with a 62.5 mm barrel. I'm playing a Chicago Kasper 11 refaced by Brad Behn and Vandoren 2 1/2 reeds.

I just joined a concert band and noticed some tuning issues on the Selmer with the clarinet section, but when switching to my 1970 R13 it was much better.

When using a tuner the Selmer is about 10 cents flatter on average compared with the R13. I tried using different mouthpieces and reeds but got pretty much the same result.

So I am thinking of getting a shorter barrel. My question is if I want to sharpen the tuning by 10 cents how much shorter a barrel should I get. I was thinking maybe get a 61.5?
