I have to agree with you on the sound of the green line R13 clarinet. My
only question is one of weight. I seems quite a bit heavier to me then a
regular R13. I have tried to get an answer on this from Buffet but to date
I have only my own experience to go on. So, if it is indeed heavier, I
would consider a neck strap to offset the extra grams, which may be as much
as 10 grams more then your clarinet.
