Just to add fuel to the discussion of clarinet materials -- have you heard
about the Scandinavian company which is making a springless flute out of
carbon? Since carbon is nonmagnetic, the keys use a magnetic system instead
of springs. Apparently the instruments are ultra lightweight, yet hold
their sound at loud dynamics. OK clarinet manufacturers, will it work here?
