To me, a better Clarinet would sound better, even for a 6th grader
starting out (though it probably will sound pretty bad). I would argue that
a Professional player could make a plastic student clarinet sound to the
audience as good an Opus or R-13, but would have to work a lot harder to do
it. We adjust, and work to sound the same regardless of the setup.
I'll bite - what does all things being equal mean?
