Clarinetists who play Sax and use the same embouchure and wind speed
for both almost always sound like Clarinet players trying to play the
Saxophone.

There is a difference. The goal is to sound like a Sax player when
playing the Sax and a Clarinetist when playing the Clarinet.

Tony,

You should take another look at the original document I referenced. I
was
not referring to the subtle differences which Forest describes. I was
referring to drastically different fundamental approaches to
embouchure.

You are arguing extremely subtle shades of white and I am talking
about
black and white.

-Adam

I would say arguing about these subtle differences is somewhat like
arguing
the difference from snow flake to snow flake while someone hits you
upside
the head with a snowball.
