Have you analyzed the precise designs and tone hole specifications of the
plastic, composite and wood clarinets that you have "compared"?
If not, this is a meaningless statement. Because as the physics
demonstrates, it is the precise tone hole, bore and detailed design of the
instrument that makes the differences, not the material.
