Clarinet Barrel Experimentation Day

Course overview | Barrels come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, but which one will be best for you? With so many to choose from, you can’t possibly try them all, but we can help you experiment and discover what makes a difference for you.

Basing our trials around barrels designed by the legendary American technician, Hans Moenig, we will show how the length, diameter, bore taper and socket shape change the tuning, twelfths and sound of your instrument.

As well as experimenting with a variety of ready made barrels, you will have the opportunity to design your own barrel, even make it yourself under supervision if you want. The fully equipped workshop will also be used to modify barrels during the day to enhance the learning experience.
