<< You're just repeating what I have already said. Note, above where I
"certainly, people are entitled to have aesthetic preferences".

This, of course, has nothing to do with the discussion at hand which WAS
about objective differences in instrument playing and sound quality.

I know this doesn't have much to do with this thread. But when I was reading
about having someone else do the fingerings while you blow, in regards in
eliminating the feeling preference of the player, this confused me. Whenever
I talk about the feeling of an instrument, it has nothing to do with how it
feels to my fingers. When I find a clarinet that feels good, it means that
it has just the right amount of resistance to the air stream -- I guess it
feels good to my diaphragm and windpipes.
