Richard Barret has a couple of interesting pieces for C clarinet (look for  
a cd with Carl Rossman). these pieces wouldn't sound as good in a B or A  
clarinets, because it would loose the hard edge of the rhythms/melodic  

so, I say Richard Barret's pieces would sound "like shit" on a B clarinet.  
probably your's sounds "like shit" on a C clarinet. both clarinets can  
sound good -> only the pieces they play can make them sound "shit".

Conclusion: don't blame the clarinets, stop giving them wrong pieces.  
Don't assume that one clarinet is worthless because he's being given the  
right material to play with.
