I agree with you. However, there are members on the list that will say that
the material itself makes no difference in the sound. I think it does, but
lets hear from those that don't.

Subject: Re: ending the GreenLine plastic/composite thread
What the below says so well is great! What is ommitted and is important
to note is that most other plastic clarinets are not Composite
Plastics.....therefore, the instrument Buffet has come up with is
remarkably different from a standard plastic clarinet that does not have
the wood chips/dust etc. as part of its material. Most people will agree
that the material itself is important in providing a resonating
chamber....and the Composite Plastic quality is much closer to a wood
clarinet in this regard than other plastic clarinets.
