Hi,

As long as I have been playing the clarinet I have been solely exposed
to the R-13 world, which has been O.K., as this has given me a good
technical foundation. However, I really want to play jazz so I will
need to move away from the classical sound. I'd like to start by
purchasing a clarinet with a wider bore, possibly an metal clarinet or
a Rossi with a wider bore. Does Rossi manufacture a clarinet with a
bore wide enough to give me a hardware foundation that I need to
create the sound that I want? Also, as I consider metal clarinets,
should I just look at older metal clarinets or should I consider the
Orsi's? Will they too offer me clarinet with a wide enough bore?

Thanx,
Ed Stuart
