Better Focus / Better Intonation!
The Chadash clarinet barrel is produced and *distributed by the Buffet Crampon company. The unique, two stage reaming process of the Chadash barrel features a poly-cylindrical bore that improves focus and eliminates sharpness in the throat tones. The barrel made from hand selected unstained Dalbergia wood, is of the highest quality that Buffet has in their stocks in Paris. The Chadash barrel is a reverse tapered cone bore similar to the "Moennig" barrel but with a very slow progression of the taper. The boring process for each barrel is done with a single edged French-style reamer that involves two different passes with the borer followed by the polishing of the bore.
