And while we are on the subject, can anyone give us the short, sweet answer
to the question of how bore size relates to anything else in clarinet
design? That is, is a smaller bore shriller, louder, better in tune, etc.,
than a comparable larger bore? And WHY that is so would be nice, too! :-)
Good and bad horns are scattered all over the range of bore sizes. It
would be nice to know what the designers were aiming for, at least.

If you have to mic a saxophone, the rest of the band is too loud.
