    Nice quality evenly faced mouthpieces certainly make a gigantic difference on Eefer...

    So as of about an hour and a half ago I got a new mouthpiece for my Eb in the mail and all I can say on it is WOW. It's loads better than the unevenly faced Vandoren B40 that was with it. While the fact that it's a good mouthpiece is what matters most to this, the mouthpiece is made by Greg...

    Maestro Mouthpieces

    Can anybody tell me about these maestro mouthpieces? They're priced relatively nicely at $60.00, but I can only find it for that price on Reverb (which states they're new). For the most part I am confused as to the naming scheme between these mouthpieces and whether or not they're quality...

    Wm. Lewerenz, St. Louis Clarinet mouthpiece

    So yesterday my mom was very nice to me as usual and bought a Clarinet for me at an estate sale while the band was riding buses to a football game- a 1936 Conn 444N, I'll type something up on that later. But it came with a Wm. Lewerenz, St. Louis Clarinet mouthpiece, made of marbled red and...

    Broken clarinet mouthpiece?

    So I recently got a Vandoran B45 mouthpiece for my clarinet (I accidentally dropped my old one and broke it) and it sounds pretty airy. At fist I thought it was because it was new, then my reeds, and so on, but I got new reeds and it still sounds super airy. I tested it against another...

    Does the Vandoren A45 B flat Clarinet mouthpiece really exist?

    Hello, knowledgable folks. My son is a freshman in high school, playing in an honors (higher level) band. His private instructor recommended this specific mouthpiece as an upgrade from the Vandoren B45. He said he has ordered it from someone in New Zealand in the past, but I can't find the...

    Looking for a clarinet mouthpiece to buy

    Hi there, I'v been playing tenor and soprano saxophone for a few years. I delved into bass clarinet less than two years ago but haven't practiced it much. Recently I started playing clarinet methodically (with my woodwind instructor) and I'm hoping to grow in this new path. I have a Signet...

    Would like a new Clarinet

    Hi, I would like to obtain new clarinet and mouthpiece to perform free jazz AND classical music. I play Buffet E11. Looking for something that would have classical sound but much more better versatility (jumping from through registers, when you don't need to care for brake so much). What...

    Looking for a mouthpiece...

    I think the title says it all, right? Currently I own Yamaha 250 Student Model (basic, run of the mill beginner Clarinet) with the 4C mouthpiece that came with it. Lately I've been really airy, and the sound quality has just decreased over time. I was told by a judge at a local solo contest...

    Choosing a Step Up Bass Clarinet Mouthpiece

    Hi there, I started bass clarinet few months ago. I bought a used Bundy from my repairman. He also gave me a student mouthpiece. Since I've been playing tenor sax for a few years and I use 6 to 7* tip opening on it, that student bass clarinet mouthpiece is too closed tip for me and has lots of...

    Returning to Clarinet - but where next!!?

    I am more or less a beginner on the bass clarinet, not having played woodwind (sop. clarinet) for several decades since my school days, but my dream to get my hands on a bass has recently come true. I am really enjoying it and the fingering is all coming back to me. At this stage, I have only...

    442 mpc on a 440 horn?

    I just bought a really cheap Vandoren 5RV Lyre mouthpiece that I didn't realise until now most likely isn't a 'Series 13' (A=440). Will using this A=442 5RV Lyre on my Yamaha 34 be a really stupid thing to do? Will I be way too sharp? I've only been playing clarinet for a few weeks now but...
