Barre / Jean Barre 1217


Serial  #1217. Thanks to Guy for this instrument!
Barrel: 62.9mm but not the original barrel. This one is a Jean Cartier plastic barrel. The original barrel was kept by Guy to replace a broken one on his other Jean Barre clarinet (the one reviewed on the page above this.) Looks like that other is about 64mm also.
Bore LH joint top: 14.1mm   Narrow!
Bore LH joint at bottom: 14.3mm

Intonation results taken when playing loud and not lipping. See how to interpret these results on the Model Comparison Page.

For this test, I pulled   0 at the bell and 0 in the middle.

Intonation summary: This is a nice clarinet. The intonation problems can be addressed with lipping, as on any clarinet of this period.

Key work quality: Very nice. Shined up beautifully.

This clarinet is most appropriate for: Beginning to fairly advanced. A narrow bore give this a sweet and focused sound.
