C Clarinet Mouthpieces
Its true that sometimes, acoustical work needs to be done, or a barrel replaced. But frequently, the problem lies in the mouthpiece. While I encourage clarinetists to try to use their regular Bb/A mouthpiece on the C, frankly, some of the deep chambered mouthpieces that we love on the Bb and A cause unavoidable problems on the C clarinet, especially in the throat tone range. Often, I have been able to cure or mitigate these problems by selecting one of my CXZ_AW_PERS mouthpieces. The shape of the windway and the depth of the chamber really help stabilize the tuning on many C clarinets.
Order mouthpiece - CXZ_AW_PERS
If you have a Noblet C clarinet, the throat tones are normally FLAT
Order mouthpiece - K11e, K13e, or K14e depending on desired tip opening.
Customer quote on the CXZ_K13e:
Thank you Walter for the nice mouthpiece, with which I am very happy, indeed, I'm actually quite delighted. Although my Noblet was a sweet little piece, the K13e has evened out the intonation of the throat notes nicely. It has also evened out the tone around the break to boost the previously fluffy G+,A,Bb and also given me a better tuning for the side key alternative for F# and Bb. Maybe I've been incredibly lucky with this m/p, but your customer feedback suggests it might be something to do with your good self! Bob Thomson Scotland
