#beginquote# Well, I don't play the clarinet, but I'll give my opinion anyway. The best clarinet is the one that works best for you. These types of "debates" go on with every instrument, but I really think that it doesn't matter the brand that you play, as long as you are getting the sound out of it that you want, and that it is the most comfortable with you. An example from my instrument would be: which is better Holtons or Conns? Well, one player might handle a Holton better because their lung capacity is better suited for a Holton, whereas another player might do better on a Conn, which requires more air, because they have bigger lungs. This doesn't mean either instrument is any better than the other. It simply means that they are different, and that one player does better on one, while another player does better on another. So the question for you is: Do you like you Buffet? Have you tried playing other brands of clarinets to compare them against what you have? If you haven't, then get out there and see if there's anything you like better. If you have, and you still like your Buffet the best, then my conclusion would be that the Buffet is the best clarinet (for you). Hope this helps. Sorry for my long-windedness. :) #endquote#
