Try changing ambience?

It does not help. Changing the default sound in Settings or in ambience dies not work. Alarm sound is always the same. This must be hard coded some place. I don't expect any changes in following updates...

I cannot confirm this on Works fine here. Changed alarm ringtone in ambience, and it is used.

Hi! I have sailfish os version and I use Clock sailfish app to set an alarm, Calendar sailfish app to set an event. Ringtones can be set under Gallery / Ambience / Clock & Calendar. When I changed the clock's sound it accepted that. When I changed the calendar's sound then calendar did not play sound at all. Calendar's setting: remind me at time of event. Reverting to the original sound file did not help either: no sound was played. Then calendar app crashed. Then original sound was played again (I used utilities / stop android support too however that might be irrelevant). Then I changed the ambiance's calendar sound and it was used. Maybe when ambiance or calendar is being edited when calendar fires causes the problem?

This is not a solution, but a workaround. It works until the GUI settings actually change anything.

I have used the developer mode and root access to replace the file /usr/share/sounds/jolla-ringtones/stereo/jolla-alarm.wav with the alarm sound that I want to have. Now it plays my sound.
