Grabner Family of Mouthpieces!
I designed these mouthpieces to have the richest, darkest tone I could devise.
To make this tone, I emphasized the lower harmonics and minimized the more shrill upper harmonics. Never stuffy, the richness of this tone extends throughout the entire range of the instrument. Response is not compromised. The quickness of attack, a hallmark of all my mouthpieces, is never more apparent.
Extremely reed friendly, the facing of these mouthpieces has been meticulously designed and tested to work with the majority of commercially available reeds, including, but not limited to Vandoren V12, Legere Signature, Rico Reserve, Rico Grand Concert, and the new Pilgerstorfer “Exquisit.”They also play extremely well with the Peter Leuthner “French Cut – professional” reeds.
Playing fatigue is not an issue as the facing is extremely embouchure friendly. Resistance versus response has been carefully balanced to give a feeling of freedom and ease of playing.
I developed these mouthpieces for the serious American symphonic clarinetist, who must play with a rich, warm, deep, dark sound; with great control; and project throughout the hall at any dynamic, from a whisper to a scream.
Try the new Grabner Style Mouthpieces. They represent the culmination of all my years of mouthpiece skill and knowledge.
