Chedeville® Umbra Clarinet Barrel
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 because it is made from our proprietary ‘Chedeville Rubber’, clarinetists will appreciate that the Chedeville Umbra Barrel adds less weight to the overall playing experience when compared to the traditional barrel.
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.
