I agree pretty much whole heartedly with jdbass here. The only thing I'd add is that I would take a GOOD R13 over them any day. New R13s run a wide gamut from what I've found with enough of them being bad that I would look for a good one.

I base this on going to clarinet or woodwind festivals, trying probably about 30-50 R13s on various tables, and coming out with about 10 that really sing well and have even resistance through most or all notes. The others are easily play a couple notes, and put it down right away as "not for me".

Yamaha 650s that I've tried, all of them have tuned well, all have played well, but I find them to be boring and maybe it's a mental thing, but I feel like it limits my expression compared to other, better horns that I've played.
