 RE: Uniform clarinets

Cindy and Mark: Imagine the comments I received from other clarinetists when they discovered that I had made second chair in our All-State High School Mid-Winter Music Clinic as a high school junior playing a Selmer Bundy Resonite clarinet. That, of course, was many years ago and I have since "up graded" to more "respectable" equipement, but it helps illustrate the current point that one should not judge the book by its cover--the person by his clothing, etc--but rather the player by how they perform and not on "what." Too many narrow-minded people still look down on players who do not have the "correct" brand of instrument before hearing them play, even in some audition situations. Imagine, turning down Larry Combs because he was carrying a LeBlanc case--or John Bruce-Yeh because of his Yamahas. I, too, think that the comment, "you made it to State on a Yamaha??" is quite immature, but also--unfortuantely--somewhat expected, human nature being what it is. It will be a few more years before we can realistically be "judged by the content of our character, not the color of our skin" (or the brand of clarinet which we carry) Until then, Good Clarineting
