Can a crack in the bell really cause such problems?

#1
Hello. First post. I hope it 's ok to post it here. My daughter dropped my clarinet on the floor today and there is now a crack in the bell. Nowever, it feels almost as if the tube is blocked. Can a crack in the bell really make a drastic change in sound? Hope I can find a replacement for the bell... Thank you

No, apparently something else got out of whack when the clarinet was dropped.
A crack in the bell should have no influence like this.
Try to play without the bell attached and see if things change.

Thank you for your reply. I will examine it closely, and take it to a shop tomorrow... I tried playing it without the bell and it was still as if something was blocking the flow of air. Thanks again
