Peter,
I apologize for answering so "late" (I'm REALLY behind on my
e-mail!)!
My understanding was that the Greenline was developed from environmental
concerns, NOT as an improved crack-resistant instrument. The idea was to
make a "quality" clarinet out of wood that would normally be discarded,
thereby saving trees.

You guys are dreaming if you think this model has anything to do with
anything but maximizing resources - the dust on the floor. Think about the
quantity of wood that has to be whittled away to make a tube. Then think
about what they pay for the wood. Then think what any right thinking business
person would do under those circumstances.

I find the environmental thing to be a bit disingenuous. True by definition
but not by motivation.
