Don't Forget

With 2 unique tapers that offer exceptional performance.

Chedeville barrels are made from the same rod rubber as the famous Chedeville mouthpieces and also have the same great resonance. Pairing your Chedeville mouthpiece with a Chedeville barrel will produce an amazing sound with crystal clear brilliance and a concentrated center and a spectrum of sound color and warmth.

Extensive collaboration with Dr. Allan Segal, custom barrel maker, and several noted professional clarinetists has yielded barrels with 2 unique tapers with exceptional performance. Ebonite (vulcanized rubber) has entirely different acoustic properties than woods, plastic, etc. and several years of testing, retesting and acoustic analysis were needed to arrive at the exact taper for each barrel type.

Presently Taper 1 is offered which is suited for newer Buffet R-13 and RC clarinets (1990s present) and Taper 2 for older (1950s through early 1990s) clarinets, but each player should try both to determine their individual preference. Barrels for other clarinets are in progress but customers have just reported that both tapers work well on LeBlanc Opus, Concerto, and Symphony, Yamaha custom models (except CSG) and Selmer 10 G. They have also said that Taper 1 barrels work well on their A clarinets too.

  • Available in sizes:
  • 65mm, taper 1
  • 65mm, taper 2
  • 66mm, taper 1
  • 66mm, taper 2
  • 67mm, taper 1
  • 67mm, taper 2

Barrel of Vintage Chedeville material yields super sound

By Nancy Swedlow

from east coast

Comments about Chedeville Clarinet Barrel:

Ranks up there with the pricier wooden ones.
This hard rubber barrel performed better for me than my more expensive and eratic wooden ones.
It is stable in low and high humidity and with temperature changes.
Intonation is spot-on.
I am using the model for older instruments on my Bb and a newer version on my new R13
Nicely made, and easy to grasp when making adjustments
View it as an extension of your mouthpiece.

Great intonation and projection for less money

By Jim Maynard

from midwest

Comments about Chedeville Clarinet Barrel:

Definitely worth trying and using.
This is a barrel made from a formula that replicates the Chedeville material that is so highly prized in mouthpieces. It seems very resonant and it gives good intonation. While it is not as pretty as some of the exotic (Backun or Fobes or Segal) hardwood barrels, it does a great job for less money. The design is supposedly done by a custom barrel maker, and there are 2 varieties--one for older, and one for newer horns. Mine works well in my A clarinet and also my Bb, since I use a 65mm.
Seems to be nicely fabricated.
This is where it shines. A great custom like barrel for the dollar
