a new Alto Clarinet Mouthpiece?
Face 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.
I designed this mouthpiece to replace these poor
mouthpieces, for the player who wants to get more out of their alto
Made from a mouthpiece blank from Zinner, this is very
possibly the world’s BEST alto clarinet mouthpiece.
Unlike so many
“stock” mouthpieces, EVERY SINGLE CX_BA mouthpiece is GUARANTEED to be “in
play test every one of them.
Basset Horn Mouthpiece:
I have a new Basset Horn
Mouthpiece. It was developed in conjunction with Lawrie Bloom, of the
Chicago Symphony. Call or write for more information.
Developed for the
Buffet RC Prestige Basset Horn. Also works well on most large bore Selmer
and Leblanc models.

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 G.,
Another Customer Quote:
Your 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 S., California
