Chedeville Launches New Umbra Clarinet Barrels

Chedeville has added to its new range of Classical Clarinet and Saxophone mouthpieces with the introduction of its new Chedeville Umbra Series Clarinet Barrels. This is the first of several new Clarinet and Saxophone Accessory products that the company will be introducing.

The Chedeville Umbra Clarinet Barrels have been designed to give your clarinet sound more warmth, depth and body and also to provide better intonation and less resistance. The Chedeville Umbra Barrels are made entirely from the same proprietary ‘Chedeville Rubber’ material that gives the beautiful warm sound to the Chedeville Clarinet and Saxophone mouthpieces. This is a more pure rod ebonite that recreates the great rod rubber of Pre-World War II legendary Chedeville mouthpieces. All the mouthpieces made from this proprietary hard rubber bear the ‘CHR’ mark, as do the new Chedeville Umbra Clarinet Barrels.

The conical interior taper of the Barrel enhances airflow and efficiency and the exact interior dimensions improve intonation as compared to the standard issue Clarinet barrel. The ‘Chedeville Rubber’ can be machined to incredibly precise dimensions and will not wear out or change with moisture or extreme weather. Also clarinetists will appreciate that the Chedeville Umbra Barrel adds less weight to the overall playing experience when compared to the traditional barrel.

The new Chedeville Umbra Clarinet Barrels are manufactured at the JodyJazz/Chedeville factory in Savannah, Georgia using state of the art CNC machines and each one is expertly finished by hand.

The Chedeville Umbra Clarinet Barrels were designed for the Buffett R13 clarinet but work extremely well with many different makes and models of clarinet.

They are available in 64mm, 65mm, 66mm, and 67mm lengths and have an MSRP of $199.00
