All about Clarinets / Clarinetist with Conn 448N question
« on: October 16, 2020, 07:10:51 AM »
This is my first post, so apologies if I'm breaking protocol by posting in the wrong place...I wasn't sure if I'm supposed to introduce myself or not?
So I've been playing clarinet on and off for years, but recently returned to more consistent practice now the kids are a little older.
The clarinet I have played longest is a vintage Conn 448N, which I love—I've also just purchased a vintage Buffet R13 which plays beautifully too—although I have discovered a hairline crack in the upper section of the instrument, where it joins the lower section. This was disappointing given the price of the instrument. I'm taking it to the repair shop today to make sure it's not going to cause me problems going forward.
I also play a vintage Conn 10m saxophone.
But I have a question re. my Conn 448N—the instrument has always played a little sharp. I'm told this is because it doesn't have its original barrel. Does anyone know where I might find the right barrel? (other than eBay of course)
Thanks, Mark
