The Virtuoso Bass Clarinet mouthpiece


This mouthpiece was created just in time for ClarinetFest2016. It sold well there and has been a consitent success ever since. A very viable option for the serious bass clarinetist. More open than the "Lawrie Bloom" model.



Bringing back the Chicago mouthpiece!


Due to very positive comments and  new market demand, I have brought back my Chicago mouthpiece, which I developed and marketed 10 to 12 years ago.

CXZ_K14 - Still hot, after all these years!

I have been making this mouthpiece for over ten years, and have sold literally thousands of them. It is a fun, free-blowing mouthpiece, with a more open tip. It serves as a good bridge between classical and pop styles and is a great piece for the doubler. Here are some comments from a recent customer:

"About 2 months ago, I bought a K14 clarinet mouthpiece based on your suggestions...... Recently I switched to some Gonzales FOF Strength 3(equivalent to 3.5 V12s) reeds which have been much more stable so that I can have the clear idea how the K14 plays......Turns out this combo, along with either a Rovner Mark III or Versa ligature, has been excellent! A warm, clear and even tone throughout the register with focus. I can play fairly loud without spreading the sound too much. ...... I've also experimented using slightly softer reeds for klezmer and jazz, and outcome has also been good. Along with the Virtuoso bass mouthpiece I bought earlier this year, my go-to mouthpieces on Bb and bass clarinet are now both Grabners! A big thank you and a job well done!
