I'd like to congradulate Tom Ridenour for designing a clarinet that really
does play in tune!

He had told me personally. He'd stated it right here @-----. He wasn't
exaggerating a bit when he said that his Concerto-Opus clarinets played it
tune without the usual constant adjustments by the player.

I recently tried a Concerto right out of the showcase. I checked it with
an electronic tuner. The needle simply didn't budge. At first I thought
the tuner wasn't working! However, if I tried to make a note sharp or flat
the needle would move. There was a little of the usual flatness on low F
and E, but they were the only out of tune notes all the way up to high G.
It was like playing a freshly tuned piano. Playing such a clarinet would be
a very liberating experience. One could concentrate on all the other
aspects of making music without even subconcious effort at intonation.

Tom has every reason to be proud of his creation.
