 Re: Resistance across the clarinet family

Yes it makes reasonable sense. Within just one clarinet voice (let's say bass clarinet) the difference between my student's horns and mine is huge, especially in the upper register.

Yes resistance matters (based on personal preference). One example: mouthpieces. I have Pyne mouthpieces that are designed for 3.5 reeds and Grabner/Smiths designed for the same. The resistances of the two different (types of) products is substantial.

Resistance can also be heard. GENERALLY SPEAKING (and attempting to not offend Alto players as I did before labor day!) the alto is a stuffy instrument that does not project well. The bass (used idiomatically in band literature) has much greater prescence with half the effort.

Why should it matter to the conductor? Because they are in charge.
