Yes, they're comparable.

As I said, though, it's not that they NECESSARILY have a different sound. Your own way of putting it is closer to the truth. They have different CHARACTERISTICS, which you can work either with or against.

For example, I said that I can get closer to what I imagine Beethoven meant in this case by playing on the Bb, rather than the A. That's because the Bb instrument TENDS towards a lighter, floatier sound in the upper register, so I can bias my sound more easily in that direction (towards the normal tendency of the C clarinet) than I can on the A.

And the same is true on older instruments. The sound we make in a particular context isn't just what the instrument provides, because we significantly influence that by our 'address' to the instrument – embouchure, mouthshape, choice of reed and so on.

So we can go further – in a particular direction – on one instrument than we can on another.

If you're interested in this, then you're on your way to being a serious player. As musicians, one of our preoccupations is creating different 'voices' in a particular piece. There is no ONE SOUND on the clarinet, well played.
