After months of research and study, I am proud to announce that I am now producing my own mouthpieces from my own designs. I call them the Grabner HiTech Clarinet Mouthpieces, and they are available for all clarinets from E-flat through contra bass. My mouthpieces are produced using cutting-edge, 21st-century technologies. They are designed using CAD software and realized through very high-end additive manufacturing. The designs are traditional with subtle improvements that meet the demands placed on the 21st century clarinetist.

I have been asked several times why I chose additive manufacturing to produce my mouthpieces, and about the material I selected. Click here for a little bit more information.

ClarinetFest 2019 was a tremendous success for us and for our new products. Many thanks to all our old and new friends! We had a great kick-off for the new mouthpieces!


Reviews of the new mouthpieces are starting to come in:

Walter, I just wanted you to know this mouthpiece (S2MO) is great. I tried a couple of other reeds on it (at home) ........and it played better than ever.  I think you are indeed on to something here!!! - Howard Green, prominent Chicago area clarinetist.

Walter, (Just) confirming receipt of the mouthpiece (B1C).  Tried it out last night and loved it.  Completely changed my tone in the upper register over the Vandoren I'd been using.  Thanks for your excellent craftsmanship! - Jeff Bruce

.........Just got home from ClarinetFest and travel through the mountains and tried my new mouthpiece.  I’m very happy.  Based on my trial at the conference, I thought I’d have some adjustment time in the altissimo register, but once I got here it plays fine.  While very close sounding to my old mouthpiece, I like it even more. It will become my primary mouthpiece and your previous one is now my backup.

I enjoyed meeting you and I’m sure I’ll have many years of enjoyment of this new mouthpiece.

Being a technologist, it’s satisfying to play on a printed mouthpiece too.  You really got the application of the technology right.

"Walter's new Virtuoso mouthpieces have a beautiful balance of warmth, depth, and brillance, with a lightening-fast articulation response and just enough resistance to give us myriad color options, while still feeling free and easy to play. Congratulations, Walter!" - Eric Mandat
