If you play a Buffet r13 Prestige or standard R13 you need one of these barrels. I never thought a barrel would make much difference but I could not have been more wrong. Fobes barrels will open up your sound and beautify your tone in just amazing ways. I was conducting a show this past month and talking shop with 3 pit clarinets who wanted to try my Fobes barrel... all of them ordered one the next day. Honestly its just that good, and I have tried several other barrels and none of them is in the league with the Fobes.
I bought this barrel with the idea in mind that i needed more length (due to being quite sharp). What I didn?t know is how much of a difference this barrel made in my tone. With the combination of his mouthpiece (a CF* San Francisco) it creates a great deep and dark tone that I never thought I could achieve. I?d definitely recommend this barrel to anyone, tuning issues or not!
Clark made me a bbl. I tried both the Grenadilla and the Rosewood ( A tapers )and chose the Rosewood.. The Rosewood gave a lighter sound.......not brighter but lighter. Both bbls improved 12ths, throat tones and gave a warm and focused tone. I Tired it on my 7 Bb's and 3 A's. Other players tried the bbl and although not their mm (64) (I play flat), made similar comments. I prefer it over my Buffet, Chadash and Moening bbls.
Ironically, unlike many other bbls, I found this had no 'sweet spot'.
It's definitely worth trying.
As with his MP's, Clark's workmanship is impeccable.
This is a great barrel. Like all of Clark's products, it is well designed and manufactured. It produces an extremely even and focused tone, nicely dark, warm and resonant throughout the clarinet. It is incredibly smooth from register to register. The tuning is amazingly good and notes line up beautifully. I have tried many of the top barrels out there, including some exotic ones that cost much more and this one is easily equal or better in all respects.
This barrel has changed my perspective on the clarinet. It has made intonation issues on my clarinet non-existent. The tonal center and evenness of response is unreal. I love this barrel. This is far better than the Backun and Buffet altered barrels. The taper design by Fobes is more insightful for Buffet owners. I play a 1973 R13, that is a dream. This barrel makes it more in-tune and much more even in response.
