But can you "feel" the difference between really GOOD wood and so-so
wood? Or between wood and Greenline material? Or are such feelings, as I
suspect, mostly psychological? If your fingers can actually feel the
difference when playing, such hypersensitivity must cause you AGONY when
performing even the most mundane household tasks.

My response:

Richard Hawkins is the person I quoted. And we were specifically
discussing the Greenline R-13 vs. the R-13 wood clarinet.

I never said it was the fingers that feel the difference. And no, the
difference is most definitely psychological.

I experience quite a bit of agony mopping the bathroom and kitchen
yesterday. However, I doubt it had much to do with the material of the mop

Best wishes,
