of the fun things about my job is that I get to experiment. Now that
I am making my own blanks, a much larger world of mouthpiece-making
has opened up for me.
mouthpiece is a new prototype. I call it
the "Walter, I can't work so hard anymore" mouthpiece.
I made this
mouthpiece for those who can't work as
hard physically as they used to, but still want to continue playing well. It
requires less lung capacity and less embouchure pressure, yet it produces a
lovely and completely characteristic clarinet sound. It tunes
well and as an added dividend, articulates like crazy.
I developed this
mouthpiece for use with the Legere Signature European Cut
reed. In fact, I sell it with a #3- 1/2 Legere reed as part of the sale.
is a prototype, I am keeping the price very low, and I will make only
24 of them. Based on the
feedback from those of you who buy it, I will decide whether or not to add it as a regular
member of the Grabner HiTech mouthpiece family. Welcome to the cutting edge, I look forward to hearing from you.
|The SP1 mouthpiece will work with a Legere #3- 1/2, #3-3/4 or even a #4|
mouthpiece was digitally designed and manufactured to the most precise
technical standards available. It has been hand-finished, adjusted, and play
tested for optimal performance.
Since it is still in prototype stage, the SP1 Mouthpiece is only $145. Terms are the same -
try one or more for a week, send back what you don't
want to keep for a quick refund. You can keep the reed!
