"Case in point: Eddie Daniels, who in my opinion sounded better on his Buffets before switching to MOBA clarinets."

Actually, Eddie played Leblanc clarinets before he personally introduced John Stoner from Conn-Selmer (who own Leblanc) to Morrie and LeBlanc got Morrie to redesign their clarinets.

Leblanc were always known for their liveliness and fun, and in many people's opinion, Morrie's are MORE lively and fun.

The "ping" that many people miss is the sound of Grenadilla. Nothing wrong with liking that. Morrie's designs very sweet sounding instruments to my ear, even his Grenadilla instruments have that sweetness.

Only those who have been seduced by Cocobolo barrels and bells on Grenadilla instruments ever seem to like a fully Cocobolo instrument. There is room for all tastes of colors and flavours. I had both Grenadilla and Cocobolo MoBa clarinets and just stopped picking up the Grenadilla horns after a while and finally sold them.

It seems to me to be slightly effronterous to state that Eddie used to sound better on his previous (mis-identified) instrument. Possibly it goes beyond effrontery to state that "For Eddie Daniels, it just doesn't work."

Using Youtube "recordings" to make one's point is....well...pointless. I own everything Eddie has ever released and listen on very good equipment. Eddie sounds great on everything. Our sound as musicians comes from our imagination, and the equipment we use is, as Ricardo Morales says....the microphone for that.

Just my opinion,
