Do the cracks go completely through? Most REPUTABLE techs won't 'service' a clarinet that has leaky cracks anywhere other than the bell.
Have you tried 'half-holing' your altissimo notes? Sometimes that helps them speak a little more clearly.
Have you changed anything like your mouthpiece, reeds, ligature? Or are you playing on blown out reeds?
There are a lot of things that can contribute to nasty sounding astissimo notes other than a few cracks that DON'T go through the 'important' joints. (barrel, top, and lower)
