No offense, but the idea that GreenLines crack "less" as opposed to not
cracking at allis absurd. The GreenLine is a plastic, plain and simple.
There are various kinds of plastic - thermo, acrylic, phenolic, etc. The
Greenline billets are a composite plastic meaning it is made with two or more
parts and is formed (densified) under heat and pressure. Therefore, it
should never crack do to extreme temperature changes, unless you place it in
a vat of liquid nitrogen an drop it in the floor!

It just proves that a professional clarinet can be made from plastic and
sound as good, if not better than wood. I just wish Buffet would have used a
better plastic
(i.e. - laminate) that would posess the color and grain pattern patten of
grenidilla, rosewood, etc. I'll never buy a wood clarinet again, plastic is
the supreme being!
