Does anyone have the in depth knowledge/experience to advise Klarinettists`

manufacturers, and also within the <individual> instruments? >>

It's generally simple. Clarinets don't play out of tune, clarinetists play
out of tune. The clarinet itself can make life harder or easier for the
player. A great technician with very detailed knowledge of how to adjust
pitch issues can help any instrument get closer. . .provided an excellent
player is guiding the way. The mouthpiece and barrel play a big role as well.
The ears are the real guide, though.
