I play Selmer/Selmer/Rovner/M. Lurie Premium. From what I've heard/read,
I'd consider that reasonably conventional.

I agree....and for what kind of playing. What, if any, universal
conventions exist? Do players adopt or do "things" (what things?
conventional things) differently from country to country.......teacher
to teacher, etc. What are some of the factors that help determine what
becomes "conventional" or the norm? Like it or not...."things" do/can
become considered the "norm", or conventional........like instrument
used, embouchure, rules of tech, etc. This certainly does not mean that
we have only one way to play clarinet. "Other", unconventional
ways.......other successful ways of doing things exist! The Stoltzman
thread really got this going. He has had a very successful career....but
many clarinet players do not like the way he plays. Has this mixed
reaction by peers caused because he doesn't conform to expected
convention?
