    Hi when I got my second had A Lewin from a friend whose elderly grandad had been a clarinet teacher it came with out a barrel. Fortunatly my really old barrel from my 1924 Bb Boosey and co. fitted. Question is should I try and get a A barrel or will the Bb one do. Not got a lot of free cash 'cos I am disabled and can not work full time, but it's a very pretty instrument and sounds ok-ish.:Space2:

    usually A barrels are not exactly the same design as Bb barrels, but that does not mean that it won't work. If it plays well and intonation is good then it works.
