 clarinet changes after "playing-in"

Hello clarinetists,

I've been playing for 2 months now, and am pleased with my progress. I am especially pleased with the tone I am now getting out of my Selmer CL201 which I have been "breaking-in" for a month now. It was new when I got it and dehydrated (the store where I bought it was over air-conditioned and dry). Now that I've had it in my home under controlled temp/humidity and have been playing it twice a day for a month the tone I believe has improved... or is it just me that has improved. Even the bore is looking better. It used to be so rough and now appears smoother and shinier - probably from all that swabbing.
I am wondering can a clarinet's tone change after having been played-in for a while? - even a short while?
I know guitars improve with playing but that takes years.

Thanks to all that respond.
