Subj: Re: [kl] Buffet's Green Line R-13

I bought two new Festivals last summer--a Greenline and a wood one--both
spectacular. I played some Cavallini etudes for a group of about a hundred
music teachers at VMEA in November alternating clarinets--then I had them
vote. It was about half-and-half, who liked one and who liked the other.
And nobody knew which one the greenline was till I told them.

I'm playing my greenline more these days than the wood one. It's safer in
this cold weather, and it's a full-fledged professional horn in every sense
of the word. Besides, I just like it--it sounds good, it's even, and it
feels good. No problems with splitting, cracking, etc., and no problems with
flat throat tones--this one, with my Pyne M mouthpieces, nails the tuner

Perhaps the best example of the Greenline being used as a pro horn is that
Bob Spring performs on them. I haven't heard a problem.......

In my opinion, they are most definitely a professional horn - and if I were
to do it again, I would go all Greenline.
