They are shaped similar to a Morgan or to sax mpc's.
Ah yes, I remember seeing references to these now in the endless mouthpiece discussions.
Too bad they're not available anymore. I've always felt that that clarinet
mouthpiece design should be radically rethought along the lines of how saxophone mouthpieces are made, but we're stuck with the Chedeville French concept for the most part (made for classical players) with mods to accommodate other approaches to clarinet
playing. Vis., the usual B45, 5RV or whatever VanDoren, which members of this site use most often, are still a mod of a French classical mouthpiece (as is my preferred Charles Bay, I confess).
It seems to me the time is more than ripe for someone to really change how clarinet
mouthpieces are made. All the options of chamber size and baffle and construction material have been explored by saxophone geeks for decades, but never have I encountered the same rethink for clarinet
. So everybody from Albania to the New York Philharmonic plays on something made from the Chedeville blank, with most of us hunting for a lifetime in search of what works for our own musical expression. I've asked Morgan, Fobes and others about this philosophy and never had a reply.
