construction method which creates a crystaline, latticelike structure
to the mouthpiece.
Light as a feather, it creates a tone that is
the ultimate in smoothness and flexibility. You can play for hours,
with little effort.

klezmer. Play Mozart to Gershwin to Dixie with equal facility and

tonguing, even double tonguing, is easier on this mouthpiece.

Quote from Zisl Slepovitch - Prominent NYC
was a candy day, for my clarinet and, by association, for me: Time to
unveil the mystery "adventurous" mouthpiece: it is
Walter Grabner's new Crystal-Tech.
Not only it is stunningly beautiful, it is also made with a novel, I
quote "construction method which creates a crystaline, latticelike
structure to the mouthpiece." I have been playing Walter's
outhpieces since 2009......and it's been a blessing - to find equipment
that really works for you. Every musician can relate. Today I
got my first Grabner Hi-Tech mouthpiece (i.e. 3D printed), and it
worked for me. Walter asked me if I wanted it to be on the darker or
brighter ("klezmer") side. I went with the latter and I do not regret:
Crystal Tech can go bright but never shrill, but it also can go
*extremely* dark, like dark-dark-dark! As is characteristic of
Walter's mouthpieces, Crystal-Tech
has that complex "3D", extra voluminous
quality to its sound that I have always appreciated."
Includes one Legere European Signature Reed 3.50 strength.
