  • Improve your tone
  • Improve your intonation

Grabner Barrels

 For quite a few years, I made barrels on my lathe, in cocobolo, delrin, and African blackwood. They were in very hot demand. It got so there was quite a waiting list. Sadly, allergies made it impossible for me to continue making the barrels by hand.

Flash forward eight years. The Grabner barrel is now available, with an even higher level of quality, manufactured by CNC technology, but still hand reamed and play tested. The attributes of the Grabner barrels include:

  • Specifically designed to complement and enhance the performance of Grabner mouthpieces
  • Specifically designed for Buffet R13 bore clarinets (R13, Prestige, Festival, Tosca)
  • You can use them on both Bb and A clarinets
  • Made from beautiful, aged African Blackwood
  • Ringless for best tone and response
  • Superb clarity in throat tones
  • Modified Moennig style reverse cone taper for improved tuning
  • Available in 64, 65, 66, and 67 mm lengths
  • Highest possible quality and consistency
  • One year warranty on cracking
  • Fits in your case.
