The Traditional barrel features a sleek external design with an inverted taper harkening back to the traditional Moennig barrel but updated for modern instruments. It produces better tuning, focus, and projection compared with stock barrels. The Traditional barrel is typically more "powerful" than the Focus, making it especially suitable for those looking to add flexibility, resonance, and an immediate core to the sound.
Generally, choose the same length barrel that you are currently using on your set-up. If you are very sharp and tend to pull the barrel out more than a millimeter, consider a longer barrel or purchasing tuning rings.
Barrels fit most brands of clarinets with standard tenon diameters. There are exceptions for instruments with non-standard tenon diameters, such as the Selmer Signature. Please feel free to send us an email if you are unsure about the compatibility of your clarinet.
