a new Alto Clarinet Mouthpiece?
it, most alto clarinet mouthpieces were made for beginners, or the
“weak, less accomplished” player. Even a
decent alto clarinet mouthpiece favors the low register at the expense
of the clarion register. This limits the efforts of the serious player.
designed this mouthpiece to replace these poor mouthpieces, for the
player who wants to get more out of their alto clarinet playing.
from a mouthpiece blank from Zinner, this is very possibly the world’s
BEST alto clarinet mouthpiece.
so many “stock” mouthpieces, EVERY SINGLE CX_BA mouthpiece is
GUARANTEED to be “in spec”
I play test every one of them.

The Grabner alto clarinet mouthpiece came in today's mail
[about 45 minutes ago], and it sounds spectacular. Barb
is playing it while I write this message. She's ripping through
all kinds of her music, and can hardly believe it's her
sound. The mouthpiece responds for her on the alto in much the
same way as mine (Grabner CX_BS) on bass -- consistency among
registers, a rock-solid sound, no squeaks. She didn't even take
any time to adjust to the new mouthpiece--amazing.
She and I both are using Legere reeds
and BG ligatures, and the response and feel are most
astounding. We're both finding the same response as many of
the customer comments on your website--fluency and consistency through
all registers, enhanced articulation, a wonderfully full, woody sound,
amazing consistency at all dynamic levels. Obviously,
we're keeping this alto clarinet mouthpiece! -- John
Another Customer Quote:
alto mouthpiece arrived last Thursday, and I have been
experimenting the last few days. First off, it plays like a dream, with
equal resistance through the range of
the instrument (no more stuffy B and C over the break).
Bottom line is that I can stop searching for a better alto mouthpiece.
This one is perfect. My “Professional Selmer Series 9”
alto finally sounds like a professional instrument. -Howard
