Good post Robert! There is surely a sound difference between the Buffet's and the Yamaha's. Well the Buffet's and all of the other instruments. Backun's, Selmer's, every horn has its own sound. I've played the CSVR's now is several halls, made some adjustments, facing adjustments, different Yamaha barrels, but they do their job just fine. There is the ping and the ring. Yes it sounds different than the Buffet's but it surely is there. As I've said before these are not toys anymore, these horns are beasts. The sound will fill any hall, but you have to have the right mouthpiece. You don't need something like a 1.20 tip opening. I'm at 1.05 or so. My greatest thrill is playing "A" clarinet solos. That A clarinet is just so fun to play. No resistance like Buffet's. It plays like the old Selmer 9 series with more control and tunes really well.

Are Buffet's better? Buckun's and Selmer's better? Well I like the idea of taking a CSVR out of the case, it seals, it sounds great, it's in tune, and you can play a concert that night for about $2500. Or $5000 for a set. The cost on 1 Buffet or 1/2 of a Tosca and a Backun. They are still great enough for top symphony orchestra as we are now seeing over and over.
