Mark:

I have to agree with your response posting. I believe that I would have done much better in high school many years ago if I had a decent mp and good reeds, even on top of the clunker clarinet that I had. Even with all of that against me, I could still produce a good tone on that piece of junk. So, a lot of the performance can be made up by the player if he or she works at it hard enough. This also partially proves the point that a good clarinetist can make anything sound good.

However, having high quality equipment sure does make life easier. A mere $30 or so investment today in a decent mp and good reeds can put a young player potentially years ahead of his or her peers. You can prove it with your own students.
