Anytime someone tries to tell you what you should do with a religious fervor, it's good to nod politely and change the subject as soon as possible; sometimes, even if you're talking about religion. This is a perennial topic, and the only reasonable answer is that one should, given the opportunity and means, try out a number of possibilities, and play what one sounds best on, according to one's own standard but taking into consideration what other competent musicians think of one's playing. If clarinetists can't get past the brand and model, then ask other woodwinds, who mostly don't care what you're playing. The notion that everyone in a section playing the same model of instrument makes them blend best is demonstrably not the case, though, once the players get to a reasonable level of competence. Lots of high-power orchestra sections blend perfectly well with a mix of instruments. Good players can blend or stand out when the music calls for it and with a sound appropriate to the music. The idea is to become good playing what you've chosen to play.
