Clarinet bells are expensive to make, requiring a wider hunk of wood. And they are the most frequent part to crack. So it makes great sense to use a different material for the bell.

That heavy bell is certainly hard rubber.

Yes, I no longer assume that vintage hard rubber will have the grey/green color.
I\'m also convinced that a Pruefer Silver Throat can serve as a weapon in certain self defense situations :s
