 Re: Selecting a clarinet with Lisa Argiris

Marty,

"What's truly astounding to me, however, is that we let a major company (Buffet) get away with quality control SO terrible, that we have to have knowledgeable artists hand-select instruments so we don't get a lemon. Would anyone tolerate that in any other field? Would we think it normal to have professional drivers try out a bunch of Fords for us, to make sure we didn't get a horrible car? Truly amazing - yet we put up with it in this case."

I think it's more like dating than cars. People put themselves through a lot of marginal and really embarrassing stuff, but you only need to get lucky once to make it worthwhile. Don't do Buffets anymore myself, but if that's what someone needs in order to make music the way they want to, then large amounts of hassle are worth it if the end result is the instrument they really want. Think you're right about students, though. It makes more sense to point them at makers who can deliver good quality without an overly arcane selection process.
