Article number: WACLBAIDMED-Grenadilla A-67mm
Availability: On backorder

The Aidoni Medium Bore clarinet barrel is in between the US and Original bores also offered. It is a totally new bore design producing a bit more focused sound and feeling, compared to Original bore. The barrel has an inner plastic tube with a reverse taper, and the tube is partially covered with a thin brass pipe. The result is a perfectly balanced barrel with exquisite intonation, and a resonant and focused sound. The use of a plastic inner tube allows a precisely measured bore, keeping its dimensions constant. The Aidoni barrel reaches the right temperature and pitch faster than a traditional wood barrel. Available in Grenadilla and Cocobolo for both Bb and A clarinets.

Håkan Lundström, a skilled craftsman and experienced woodwind repairer, and Per Johansson, solo clarinettist with the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra collaborated to produce a unique new barrel. It is the result of a long and meticulous process of experimentation, built with an inner plastic tube with a reverse taper. The tube is partially covered with a thin brass pipe resulting in a perfectly balanced barrel with exquisite intonation and a resonant and focused sound. The use of a plastic inner tube allows a precisely measured bore, keeping its dimensions constant. The Aidoni barrel reaches the right temperature and pitch faster than a traditional wood barrel.

Famed clarinetist Martin Frost also consulted on the design as he performed with the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra helping take the barrel to a whole new level.
