That's a good one. A clarinetist will always have a personally
unique sound. I've heard a friend play after not hearing them for a couple
of months and they sounded the same, even though they were on a new
clarinet, different mouthpiece, ligature, and reed from before.
I would say that my sound would be the same but my style of playing
would differ from piece to piece. I don't think I would mess with changing
to a bright or lighter reed or mouthpiece for the French pieces or a
heavier darker sound for the Brahms. As we all know, most of the time
we're thankful for an ideal reed that will allow us to achieve our top
level of performance. So the "tone" would not change but the musican
approach would.
