Where it all began
There is a reason we call this barrel the New Traditional: this is where it all began. An exotic wood body nestled between two integrated wooden rings brings unyielding response and even articulation to your clarinet. Many artists consider this barrel to be the optimal choice for solo and chamber music playing.
Specs: Grenadilla or cocobolo wood. Compatible with Bb and A clarinets.
One barrel, one velvet bag, and one barrel tube.
I am loving the sound! Cured the chronic flat intonation issues!
The responsiveness of this barrel is very good. All notes speak with ease, especially going over the break.
New Traditional Barrel
Indeed it transformed my clarinet sound warmer and brighter with less effort. Even the slightest tone can be produced with slightest effort. Really cool barrel to upgrade a student grade clarinet.
Sweet sound but not a great fit on Yamaha 650
Not a snug fit on my Yamaha 650, but I'm using it anyway because of the full, warm sound.
