I'm currently playing on a Gleichweit Hi7 opening (Viennese), Reform Boehm Bore, on my Buffet RCs and I'm truly satisfied.
I always wanted to try the viennese opening and Johannes gave me very helpful advices (for the reeds as well, because the viennese cut is absolutely necessary) in order to get a viennese sound and style with a French clarinet.
Intonation is wonderful as well and high notes come out easily; of course viennese opening needs severla hours of practice if you come from a traditional french mpiece, but i found confortable this way to play, with no "bite job" at all and all the control is on your breath. The tone quality satysfies me and I beleive it's kinda close to the sound I hear from Viennese players with their Austrian setups.
French opening mpieces play louder but with the right reed I have no problems to project (I currently play in wind orchestras and bands).
Reform bore rather that Bohem bore was suggested by Johannes to get a more viennese sound experience: it fits perfectly my Buffet and MoBa barrels.
