Ridenour plays with a tad more resistance perhaps compared to other horns. It’s up to the clarinetist whether that’s a good or bad thing.
As for projection, from personal experience I’ve never had an issue. But rubber certainly has different acoustical properties compared to grenadilla. Everything is a compromise. With its impeccable intonation I’m willing to tolerate any perceived differences.
