Try the Legere now ... not later. Also highly recommend the Pilgerstrofer Dolce reeds. Break them in slowly and keep in a Rico hydro case. Excellent.

A wooden instrument should not present problems if good quality and taken care of.

I play an R13 Greenline (composite) and a Yamaha 650 (wooden) clarinet ... believe it or not, I have a lot of problems with the joints sticking or loose on the Buffet and practically NO problems with the Yamaha!! Go figure. Bottom line is that IMHO Buffet's quality sucks swamp water and Yamaha rocks. But, I generally like playing the Buffet better ... it is smoother in its timbre and resistance, but not in tuning. Can't have everything ...? Well, maybe the Yamaha CSVR has it all ...!

Good luck on your tryouts!

Tom
