So as long as we're doing this, what about the current crop of professional
Selmer clarinets? Selmer, I gather, used to be the alternative to Buffet.
Now it appears to be LeBlanc, even though Selmer is still in the high-end
clarinet business. But if you go to their website, even Selmer does not
list among its various artists any clarinetists.

Well, you CAN get the Benny Goodman poster.....
