Product InformationHans Moennig developed this reverse cone tapered barrel, manufactured by Buffet Crampon. Reverse cone barrels are larger at the mouthpiece end, and Moennig barrels are .589"-.590" at the mouthpiece end and reduce to .579" at the opposite end.
The rather severe reduction in the barrel bore can have several positive affects. The throat tone twelfths, particularly thumb F/C and E/B, are reduced in size, aiding in overall tuning. The choke created by the step at the juncture of mouthpiece and barrel can add a nice resistance that increases response and adds centre to the tone.
All of this is also affected by the mouthpiece and rest of the instrument that you are using so results can vary accordingly.
