Juan Romero has played Peter Eaton clarinets since 1993 and most of his pupils have followed his example. He chose the International model initially but changed to the large bore Elite in 2000. "The Peter Eaton clarinet has the capacity of not hindering the development of my creativity. It does not restrict the tone, so it is authentic and personal. This clarinet gives me freedom and spontaneity".
