 RE: changes in 50 years.

From the clarinets I've seen, I'd venture the opinion that there have been no significant changes (and very few minor ones, even) in clarinet design and construction in the past 70 years (using 1930 as a rough transition from Albert to Boehm system, at least here in the U.S.). The alleged benefits of polycylindrical bores notwithstanding, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference visually between a typical 1930's clarinet and a new one. I'm sure the manufacturing of clarinets has become highly automated, but the end product doesn't seem to me to have changed much at all.
