Hi, Hiroshi.

It seems to me a little odd to write in English from a Japanese to a Japanese…

You mentioned that Beffet Festival has dark tone.
I've played on the instrument for several years but I've never felt so.
Catalogue says that Festival is a successful model which obtained a bright tone from R-13 series and obtained a precise pitch from RC series. At least, it has a bright tone.

Buffet's official HP explains Festival as bellow:
Enjoyed by classical and jazz players alike, the Buffet Festival clarinet is an exceptional professional instrument. An offspring of the R-13 family of clarinets, this instrument is manufactured with premium quality Grenadilla wood which produces a rich, powerful sound.

Selmer Recital has a darker tone, I quite agree with you.
When I played on Recital's barrel on Selmer 10S2star, the tone was dramatically changed. Yes, I could get darker and richer sound.

Each instrument has its own character like "dark" or "bright". But, tone should be finally characterized by player himself/herself, I believe. Tone is the person's character itself. Most important thing is to practice to be able to produce beautiful sound. Tool is not so important.
