In honor of Dan Leeson, of all the subjective crap posted to KLARINET, the
opinion of Ms. Brannen certainly is right up their with the best. While she
and her husband are certainly welcome to their opinion, it seems to this
bass/contrabass clarinet player that it would be of major help to the members
of the KLARINET list if the Brannens were invited to compare the latest
"iteration" of both Selmer and Buffet bass clarinets to establish a basis in
"fact" (whatever that is) for their pronouncement. Their reputation as
tecnicians is legendary, but without an explanation, their opinion is really
no better (or worse) than any of the members on the list. Does anyone know
the Brannens well enough to invite them to back up their opinion with
specifics? Looking forward to an answer...
