I bought a Chinese made low C bass clarinet from an Australian shop - Tritone in Canberra - apparently from the same maker as the American Kessler. The interior of the neck is rather rough and my pull-through snags on it.I have been tempted to find a way of smoothing it down but as the horn sounds good and plays well I'm prepared to have my pull-throughs having a shorter life.
I'm always suspicious of unusual ways to improve the sound of a horn, though I did suggest to a former student, who has devoted years to such a quest, that it might be possible through surgery to have his entire oral cavity reshaped at not much more than the cost of a new Yanagisawa bari, new mouthpiece, etc.
Haven't heard from him since.
