Hand-Crafted BBb Contra  Bass Clarinet Mouthpiece

Attention: These are all sold out. Watch this space to see if more come available.

A professional quality, hand-crafted mouthpiece for the BBb Contra Bass clarinet player.


Made from a mouthpiece blank from Zinner, this is very possibly the world’s BEST BBb Contra bass clarinet mouthpiece. Every single CX_BBCN mouthpiece is guaranteed to be “in spec”.

I play test every one of them. 

Very Legere’ friendly:

Many customers report a very high degree of success using Legere reeds on contrabass - and with this mouthpiece.

Customer quotes:

"I have just safely received my Contrabass mouthpiece, and I am very pleased with it"-David Fuest, British recording artist.

     “I’ve just purchased a Walter Grabner Contrabass
mouthpiece, and it is without a doubt the best
contrabass mouthpiece I’ve ever tried. This thing is
amazing! I can finally play this instrument
comfortably - from a whisper quiet low C, to high
notes that actually sound... beautiful! it brings an
evenness and security I never thought possible, with a
rich mellow tone - even when "letting it rip" and
rattling the windows. Articulation is also a breeze,
crisp, clean and consistent. I cant speak highly enough of it – congratulations. Walter, this is a work of art.” P.E. Australia

    “Sold.  I hope you weren't expecting it back.”
